We are delighted to announce that His Majesty King Abdullah II of Jordan has been announced as the Royal Patron of Mosaic’s 2015 International Leadership Programme, which this year will be delivered in partnership with the King Abdullah II Fund for Development, with the two-week residential course kicking off the Programme being hosted in Amman in May 2015.
Today saw Mosaic Founder HRH The Prince of Wales and the Secretary of State for International Development attend the ‘Learning From Experience’ event in Amman, where multiple UK organisations were represented including Mosaic to celebrate the £220m of wider support the UK has been providing over the past three years to support prosperity, security and stability in Jordan.
At the one-off event, attended by talented youth from across UK-funded programmes who benefited from employment workshops delivered by organisations including Mosaic, His Royal Highness thanked HM King Abdullah II for agreeing to become the Royal Patron for the 2015 International Leadership Programme.
Jonathan Freeman, Mosaic’s Managing Director, also present at the event said:
“This is a special recognition by His Majesty King Abdullah II of the power of the International Leadership Programme to help nurture tomorrow’s leaders, in what is often a very challenging circumstances for participants of our programme. We look forward to coming back in May and working with the King Abdullah II Fund for Development to put on our best programme yet!”
The Mosaic International Leadership Programme brings together 80 young leaders from around the world to develop their leadership skills, inspire thinking about global issues and equip them to become involved in their local communities.
The two-week residential in Amman will include 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.
Following the Summit each participant is matched with a Mosaic mentor who supports them to write a personal ‘Action Plan’ outlining how they will put their learning into action in their local community.
