The Mosaic International Leadership Programme
The next International Leadership Programme is planned to begin with a Summit in Spring 2015. Applicants must be a national and resident of a participating country and aged between 25 and 35. Full details on how to apply, including a list of participating countries, will be posted on this webpage once the Programme is launched.
What is the programme?
The Mosaic International Leadership Programme aims to develop leadership skills, inspire thinking about global issues, and equip young people to become involved in their local communities. The Programme begins with the International Summit, which sees 80 international delegates aged 25-35 participating in a two week residential training conference, featuring world-renowned leadership trainers and speakers. The Summit includes leadership skills workshops, inspirational sessions on global issues such as poverty and sustainability, and visits to projects in the local area which demonstrate leadership in action.
Towards the end of the Summit, each delegate is matched with a Mosaic mentor who will support them to write a personal ‘Action Plan’ outlining how they will put their learning into action in their local community. Delegates are supported in implementing their Action plans by Mosaic and their mentors for 12 months following the Summit. Delegates’ Action Plans have included projects as wide ranging as establishing a mobile library service in rural Indonesia, setting up a corporate volunteering scheme in Pakistan and a professional women’s network in Saudi Arabia.
What is the International Summit like?
The Summit is dynamic and participative by nature; delegates are encouraged at all opportunities to ask questions and input their ideas. During the Summit, delegates are encouraged to consider how they will apply their learning from the Summit to be of use in their local community. Delegates formulate and submit an action plan to map out their intended community involvement over the next 12 months, including their three-monthly goals. The next Summit will take place in Spring 2015. Full details about how to apply and where the Summit will be held will be posted here in due course.

Our Partners for 2013/2014
"We wait for others to be leaders when we should be the ones to take up initiative. I've realized that waiting for someone else to come in and fix our problems is not the way forward. You have to take responsibility and think and also act like a leader.”
