About the project Edit

Through our annual Summit, year-long programming and staff curriculum, the Global Engagement Summit (GES) builds the capacity of the next generation of change-makers.

By identifying talented, young individuals, providing skills training and connecting driven students with innovative thought leaders, GES empowers them to produce responsible and sustainable solutions to shared global problems. In addition to tangible outcomes, resources, and opportunities, GES also strives to provide a forum for discussing critical issues and evaluating why we want to "do good well."

Through GES, students can connect in order to: share challenging ideas, explore the realms of social entrepreneurship and community development, and equip themselves with the tools needed to take their social ventures beyond good intentions.

Above all, GES hopes to foster a greater sense of community among the world's young people through partnerships in change, with a view toward a better tomorrow.

Engage Chicago will be held April 14th to 17th and GES 2013 will be held April 17th to 21st.
