Call for applications for the Mindanao Young Leaders Programme 2020

UnionAID, International Alert, and the New Zealand Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade invite applications for the 2020 Mindanao Young Leaders Programme.

Emerging community leaders, aged between 23 and 30, from all regions of Mindanao are invited to apply for this four-month leadership programme, commencing in Wellington, New Zealand in August 2020.

The Mindanao Young Leaders Programme (MinYLP) aims to enhance the knowledge, skills, and confidence of young community leaders from Mindanao to actively participate in the sustainable and peaceful development of their communities and of Mindanao, more broadly.

Participants will follow a group programme and individually explore a particular area of interest, develop and refine a research question on this topic, and prepare a change proposal for a practical project to be undertaken on their return home.
