Do you care about what is happening in the world? Are you interested in leading change to make a positive difference?

Final places available for an immersive residential international leadership programme, followed by 6 months of coaching support.  WYSE International will bring together 30 emerging leaders aged 18‐35 yrs from across the world for an intensive, challenging and rewarding 12 days of leadership training to support you to make an even bigger impact in your communities. WYSE International invites applications from individuals with a strong interest in active global citizenship who have a vision of a fairer, more sustainable and peaceful world and who are willing to play their part to make it happen.

WYSE International is a registered UK charity and NGO affiliated with the United Nations Department for Public Information and has been running international leadership programmes with a focus on global citizenship for over 20 years. They are a volunteer-led charity dedicated to supporting emerging leaders for global change, and are committed to increasing access to leadership education for the young people who are most likely to act as positive changemakers at a local and international level. WYSE International brings together a staff of leadership experts from around the world who give their time on a pro-bono basis in order to provide an in-kind tuition bursary for the residential programme and coaching support. The direct cost to each participant for the programme is £990 for food, accommodation and administration, this is at a highly reduced cost thanks to the in-kind contribution from staff (the full cost without this support would be £7,000 GBP).
