Leadership development is one of our flagship programs that we pride in that it gives a voice to young people.

We support them in acquiring the leadership potential they need in all spheres of life. Using a youth-led approach, all projects are designed and led by the young people themselves. We focus both on individual skills, but also group and teamwork abilities, which are fundamental to a young person’s success. The activities we offer seek to empower, raise aspirations, enable participation and voice and advance young leadership. The sessions are highly interactive and involve fun games.
