The Young Global Leader Program gives recent High School graduates and rising 11th and 12th graders the opportunity to explore public health through hands-on experiences in research, academic track exploration, career exploration, participation in professional lectures and seminars, lab experiences and team-based learning.

Students will explore all academic tracks offered at the Mel & Enid Zuckerman College of Public Health and gain a deeper understanding of Public Health degrees, professions and career opportunities by interacting with current students, faculty and alumni. Students will exercise creative problem-solving skills through an interactive team-based project addressing a specific global health challenge.
