Global Leadership & Cross-cultural Exchange Summer Program

FIUTS is a nonprofit organization based at the University of Washington, Seattle. We will be hosting a two-week summer program from July 23 - August 3 on global leadership development and cross-cultural exchange with students from across the U.S. and around the world. This program is offered for students ages 13-17, more information available on our website at Tuition is $550 for the two-week program, and a limited number of partial scholarships are available. 

The SLCI includes two options for morning classes: The Global Leadership class includes interactive workshops focused on cultural competency and leadership development, and English classes include international students from around the world as well as local ELL students. In the afternoons, FIUTS staff will lead both groups on guided trips to locations around the Seattle for fun and educational excursions.
