What is GL?
Global Leadership is a year-long elective class centered on building leaders locally and globally. The focus of this elective is to learn service leadership in our school, community, and world. We will partner with No Barriers, a local non-profit, to travel to Central America. Students will engage in service learning, gather culture experiences that foster an authentic worldview, and develop an understanding of leadership in the 21st century. The four-quarter curriculum includes service leadership, team building, art, science, culture, and communication.

GL 2019-2020 Sets Record with Cans Around the Oval Collection
We did it again! This October GL organized the canned food drive in which Kinard community donated the equivalent of over 17,000 pounds of food to the Larimer County Food Bank. This contribution, a combination of cash donations and canned food items, is an all-time high for Kinard, a third year in a row! Click here to read more in the Kinard Newsletter.
Hal Kinard Visits to Speak with GL Class
In November, our school namesake, Hal Kinard, taught an entertaining class full of stories and advice from his many years of leadership as an educator, coach, and mentor. Mr. Kinard's advice included "Be kind, stay humble, and never forget where you came from and who raised you."
“Traveling to Costa Rica with Kinard Global Leadership was hands-down the best ten days of my life. This class was an invaluable part of my education.”
