Applications are open for the Young Leader Access Program 2020 in USA (Fully Funded)
The annual MCW Global flagship program is for participants between the ages of 18 and 26, who are prepared to become leaders of positive change in their communities by obtaining the tools and skills necessary to transform passion into action. The program is based on 3 phases:
Summer Program :
The program begins with an intensive, 10-day summer program that facilitates leadership development, self-awareness, a deep understanding of global citizenship, and how to implement a project from beginning to end.
Vision Planning: Project Development :
Participants arrive at the Program with an idea of a community problem that they wish to address through the vision planning process, which aims to transform passion into a tangible plan for change. During this process, participants will be able to put their local problems in a broader global context while exploring why they are in a unique position to make changes happen. Participants will also determine what tools they need to apply to the plan, to make it viable. After the program, Young Leaders are expected to develop and/or implement their plan in collaboration with their alumni mentors.
Alumni Mentorship and Ongoing Support :
To further develop and implement their vision plans, the Young Leaders combine with mentors of alumni, who guide them in the summer program towards the creation of a viable plan. During the year, student mentors support participants by facilitating quarterly “meetings” and continuous remote communication. Mentors of alumni receive personalized training before the start of the program to support team building and cultural competence.
