GYLA

The Global Young Leaders Academy (GYLA) is an intensive two-week summer program for a select group of international high school students who are currently in 9th to 12th grades. The program introduces students to entrepreneurship and other business concepts, and allows them time to become immersed in the U.S. culture. The two-week experience features Wharton faculty presentations, in-depth learning from high school teachers in the KWHS network, residential activities, field trips, community service and relationship building with other teens.
