Youth Lead the Change
Youth Lead the Change (YLC) is a global youth leadership development program that empowers students to unlock their leadership potential by developing tangible solutions to global problems. Over the course of the five-day program, students work in teams to understand an issue they care about and create a social change project to address it. Throughout this process, students learn about their own passions and strengths, as well as core leadership skills such as collaboration, public speaking, time management and self knowledge. The students also gain one-on-one coaching from the Harvard trainers, who continue to serve as mentors after the program. Students also have the opportunity to earn funding and support to implement their project after the YLC camp ends.
