Harvard is launching and directing the Advanced Leadership Initiative, a year-long pilot "third stage" educational program aimed at transforming experienced leaders into social entrepreneurs and philanthropists.
Harvard's pilot program is the latest step in the flowering of the new "third stage" of university education. It's a growing phenomenon that has been emerging for several years, as the roughly 75 million baby boomers have begun to hit their late fifties and early sixties. The venture takes into account the convergence of a new set of global challenges and the growing population of older energetic leaders who have met goals through a lifetime of work and now have a yearning to serve.
The goal of the Advanced Leadership Fellowship is to prepare experienced leaders to transition from their primary income-earning years to community and public service for their next years of life. The Fellowship is designed to enhance and leverage the skills of already-accomplished leaders for maximum impact on significant social problems, including those that affect health and welfare, children and the environment.
Since 1979, the Center for Talented Youth (CTY) at Johns Hopkins University has focused on the needs of students with exceptionally high academic abilities. The CTY community includes very bright, genius level students from all over the world whose talents place them well ahead of their agemates. These students need special attention: greater academic challenges, interaction with intellectual peers, and teaching strategies designed especially for the gifted. CTY offers gifted students, and their families and schools as well, a wide range of programs and services to nurture their intellectual abilities, enhance personal development, and foster better understanding of the needs of talented youth. This is a product that any parent with a bright child will find a way to finance.
