Mosaic’s International Leadership Programme 2016 in United Arab Emirates (Fully Funded)

Application Deadline: 19 May 2016.

Mosaic’s International Leadership Programme began in 2009 to help develop leadership skills, highlight global issues and equip young people to become involved in their local community.
The 12-month programme starts 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.
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).
The ILP begins with a residential Summit in which international delegates come together to learn about leadership, but the ILP is about much more than two weeks’ training. Mosaic measures the success of each of its leadership programmes through the projects which delegates implement in their own communities.
