GBCA focuses on creating a youth experiential growth program to help primary and secondary students to broaden their international perspective, improve their comprehensive capabilities, stimulate the inherent potential, and establish their goals. Recently, GBCA successfully organised the Youth Future Leadership program. It aims to stimulate students’ innovative thinking, train students’ public speaking skills and cultivate students’ awareness of global citizenship through a series of tailored activities, including visiting elite private school, renowned universities and incubators. Besides, the students also visited famous attractions in Melbourne and Sydney, appreciating the Australia natural beauty and feeling the cultural customs, which draw a perfect ending to the trip.
