The Global Leadership Program is a program at the Pickering College school of Newmarket, ON. It stands to "provide" students with "opportunities" to solve current problems. When further researched, the sinister intentions and the truths are revealed. The exploitation of minors' intellectual properties and the unethical application of non-copyrighted properties by the "GLP Program" System. Because when looked at the statistics, in the past few years, out of the 400 projects created only a handful were selected. Those hundreds not chosen, were left with an empty portfolio that does not compensate for the time they spent.
Furthermore, it forces them to a project that tries to solve a solution that has virtually no real impact and is just for show. That in turn, creates further unnecessary anxiety and stress for our students by distracting them from college prep. As stated before, the students were left with a project that has little to no impact on their university application especially when the project that they were forced to do had nothing to do with their major. If the establishment really wanted to change the students to global leaders, they should let them focus on what really matters to them, and their future , without it being involved with the school and its influence on the students' grades.
In conclusion, the school should prepare the already overwhelmed and tired students (especially considering the global pandemic affecting millions of families and students) to focus on their immediate future, and not add onto their stress. Without the Global Leadership Program, the students will be able to fully direct their already minuscule time to what really matters, as well as, with the added time to their days, they can spend their precious time with their family and friends to enjoy their last year of high school. The year that will never come again.
We will not be bullied or silenced into submission by the authority. As the Global Leaders of the future, we are not afraid to challenge the authority and to do what matters most to us and change the world for the better. In the many years of Global Leadership Program, no students has ever had the courage nor the intuition to go against the establishment. We will be the stepping stones for those that will come after us.
YOU - can change the future. YOU - have the power to rethink and abolish this system of intellectual exploitation. YOU - have the power to vote for us. VOTE NOW FOR OUR PETITION.
