About The Program
Join us for a powerful session tackling three of our most critical global issues: climate change, gender, and youth development. Led in partnership with YOULead Africa, which mobilizes youth across East Africa, this transformative experience will challenge you to think about how issues interact, how our experiences inform our work, and how we can inspire and mobilize others to be part of the change we so desperately need.
This experience consists of three foundational elements:
1. Exploring our role as youth leaders today. We’ll begin our experience begins with a session exploring the role of youth in social change, and taking stock of our own experiences as youth leaders. Throughout the program we’ll continue to reflect on what our this experience suggests for our leadership. We’ll participate in some of AMP’s most popular workshops, around strategic communications and dialogue. And we’ll conclude the experience by drafting a personal power plan for next steps after the program.
2. Deepening our understanding of intersectional challenges related to gender, climate change, and youth development. We’ll learn directly from youth leaders leading change on the ground in East Africa. We’ll learn from communities directly impacted by climate change, and speaking out to demand action. We’ll meet with advocates fighting for things like equal pay in the United States. And much more. The program concludes with Scholars drafting a commitment that brings their new knowledge into action.
