What Would You Do? Global Leadership Lessons from a Global War
The National WWII Museum in New Orleans offers college students and high school juniors and seniors a summer experience unlike any other. Student Leadership Academy takes students through the history of WWII with the aim of exploring leadership lessons from one of the most important periods in world history.
This six-night, seven-day program immerses students in the Museum's wealth of exhibits, artifacts, images and documents with structured Leadership Lesson Debates along the way. Students will feel what it is like to be a member of a five-man crew inside a Sherman Tank, inspect the flight logs of a bomber pilot and handle the gear of an infantryman in WWII. Students will continually revisit the theme of "what it means today," relating the lessons of WWII to their own lives and the world around them.
