Youth Leadership Academy

The 2018 Curriculum

View the 2018 agenda for the Youth Leadership Academy.

Throughout the week-long program, you will engage in a wide variety of workshops, and upon completion you will be equipped to successfully design and implement a Leadership Development Project (LDP) of your choice. In addition to workshops, you will be exposed to leading DC-based international development organizations and have the opportunity to directly apply your new skills in dynamic and exciting real-world situations.

Following the YLA, you will have the opportunity to attend a mid-year follow-on meeting at the Plan International USA office in DC to continue to hone your skills and share experiences with the YLA network. In addition, you will have the opportunity to apply for small grants to fund your LDP. You will also be paired with a mentor from the Plan network, who will be on-hand to support you throughout the year-long process.
