The John Jay Global Network
The John Jay Institute Global Leadership Network is a growing, worldwide community of principled public leaders in government, the non-profit sector, and business—many hundreds of "Fellows" from five countries--who share a commitment to faith-informed service and to using their extraordinary creativity, energy and resources to tackle the foremost political, social, and cultural challenges of our times. All share the common experience of participating in the John Jay Institute or one of the Leadership initiatives it has inspired in the United States and Europe. Fellows are typically undergraduates or post-undergraduate students between the ages of 20 and 30 who have proven themselves through success and have spent weeks in study and dialogue with others in their cohort on principled leadership, the classical and Christian virtues, and ideals and institutions necessary to fostering "the good society." They have solemnly dedicated themselves to putting their ideas into action through a life-long commitment to service in their communities and countries. All have participated in one or more of the following initiatives:
Collegium Anton Neuwirth, Slovakia
