IGENZ is based in New Zealand and is a specialist provider delivering and hosting 10 - 12 day study tours for high school age student groups. The Global Connections series offers study tours to New Zealand, Australia, China and the USA where future leaders will explore the history, culture, environment and political system while sharing observations, reflections and solutions to some of the global issues in a changed world. You may join one of the set start date programs in January, April, late June, August or September.
Our flagship program is a youth leadership summit where students, our next generation of leaders from China, USA, Australia, Canada and New Zealand meet to explore a range of topics and learn about each others country, culture, differences, history, and how they can all work together in a respectful and trusting cross-cultural environment.
This event was awarded The Best Youth Project in 2018 by Sister Cities New Zealand.
