mG20® in Action

Today’s Learners. Tomorrow’s Leaders.

For our school, mG20 in Action is a lot more than just another student club; it’s a global team united to work towards a common passion by inspiring each other and collaborating to understand the challenges that our world faces today. We’re acquiring new skills, confidence, and new global perspectives.

Cultivating leaders.
One student at a time.

At Knovva Academy, we believe leadership development is a process in which everyone participates. mG20 in Action provides students with the platform to do so. Following a club-based format, this program provides students with the collaborative space to learn and develop their leadership skills alongside students from their own schools and others around the world. Led by their teachers or their peers, students are given an opportunity to cultivate their voices and focus their passion, vision, and skills as they grow into future leaders.

How does it work?

mG20 in Action offers students and teachers a variety of tools to support the learning, practice, and acquisition of leadership skills. These tools include:

Real-world simulations

Engaging activities

Multimedia resources

Community forums equipped with video and voice chat

Public speaking opportunities

Members can access all this and more in their own secure online meeting space. Here, club leaders will have access to step-by-step instructional guides, printables, and links as they progress through each week of the program.
