Established in 2019, the Ali Ghandour Center for Leadership, Diversity and Civic Engagement (AGC) marks the first community-based learning center of its kind at the secondary school level in the region.
Jointly funded by IC and the Ghandour family, the AGC offers a scholarship program and an intensive leadership and dynamic citizenship program through a Community Engaged Learning (CEL) model.
Spread over three years, starting with the 10th grade, the program mentors students through a sequenced journey, beginning with extensive volunteering with an array of grassroots organizations and culminating with students leading Community Service Projects (CSPs). The program also exposes enrolled students to national, regional and international competitions in a wide range of fields, among them social entrepreneurship, project design, implementation and evaluation and public speaking, all with the aim of providing students with the skills and tools to become active agents of change.
Applications for the scholarship program for the upcoming three academic years are now open. For more information, please click on the below flyer.
