The International Leadership Programme 2016
The International Leadership Programme (ILP) is an innovative leadership development opportunity which aims to develop leadership skills, inspire thinking about global issues and equip young people to become involved in their local communities. The programme begins with the International Summit, which brings together 80 international young leaders aged 25-35 to participate in a two week residential training conference, featuring world-renowned leadership trainers and speakers.
The Summit includes leadership skills workshops, inspirational sessions on global issues such as poverty and sustainability, and visits to projects in the local area which demonstrate leadership in action. Following the Summit each participant is matched with a Mosaic mentor who supports them to write a personal ‘Action Plan’ outlining how they will put their learning into action in their local community.
Participants report to Mosaic on their progress against targets set in their Action Plan for 12 months following the Summit. Participants’ Action Plans have included projects as wide ranging as running employability skills workshops in Algeria, establishing a mobile library service in rural Indonesia and a women’s financial empowerment project in Iraqi Kurdistan.
The reputation and stature of the ILP is growing each year. In 2015 we received 1948 applications for just 80 highly sought after places. We are delighted to announce that applications for the International Leadership Programme 2016 are now open. With generous support from the Department of International Development, Etihad Airways, Inclusive Ventures Group, The Amersi Foundation, Kamal Exchange Company L.L.C, Prudence Foundation, Crescent Petroleum and others to be announced, the Summit will be split between Abu Dhabi and Dubai in November 2016 (exact dates will be confirmed shortly).
