MCW Global 2023 Young Leaders Fellowship Programme

The Young Leaders Fellowship Programme is a one-of-a-kind leadership opportunity open to all young people between 18 – 26 from all over the world who wish to address community projects in the areas of education, health, and economic security.

The year-long programme prepares young people to become leaders of change in their communities through leadership development, global citizenship, self-awareness, and vision planning.

MCW Global’s Fellowship begins with the Community Needs Assessment – A one-month community needs mapping that prepares young people, to understand their local communities better. After the community needs assessment, Young Leaders participate in a week-long intensive in-person training programme that helps them become leaders of positive change in their communities. After the in-person training programme, participants return to their communities to spend ten months developing their action plans with virtual support from alumni mentors. The 2023 Young Leaders Fellowship will take place in New York, New York, and Burlington, Vermont, from July 11 – 19, 2023.
