Please note that the international programme is now being delivered by Prince’s Trust International.
The International Leadership Programme (ILP) is an innovative leadership development opportunity which aims to develop leadership skills, inspire thinking about global issues and equip young people to become involved in their local communities.
About the programme
The programme begins with the International Summit, which brings together 80 international young leaders aged 25-35 to participate 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.
Following the Summit each participant is matched with a mentor who supports them to write a personal ‘Action Plan’ outlining how they will put their learning into action in their local community.
Participants report on their progress against targets set in their Action Plan for 12 months following the Summit.
Participants’ Action Plans have included projects as wide ranging as running employability skills workshops in Algeria, establishing a mobile library service in rural Indonesia and a women’s financial empowerment project in Iraqi Kurdistan.
The reputation and stature of the ILP is growing each year. In 2015 there were 1948 applications for just 80 highly sought after places.
With generous support from the Department of International Development, Etihad Airways, Inclusive Ventures Group, The Amersi Foundation, Kamal Exchange Company L.L.C, Prudence Foundation, Crescent Petroleum and others to be announced, the Summit was split between Abu Dhabi and Dubai in November 2016.
The 2015 programme began with the Mosaic International Leadership Summit from 18-29 May 2015 in Amman, Jordan. His Majesty King Abdullah II of Jordan is the Royal Patron of Mosaic’s 2015 International Leadership Programme, which this year was delivered in partnership with the King Abdullah II Fund for Development.
80 young international representatives from 18 countries converged on Jordan to take part in Mosaic’s International Leadership Programme, designed to enhance their skills as potential leaders of the future.
