Fully-Funded Training Program for Young Leaders of Prospective Community Change offered by MCW Global

MCW Global is presenting its 2020 flagship training program for young leaders, who are prepared to lead positive change in their communities by obtaining the tools and skills needed to transform passion into action. 


Young Leaders should:

  1. Demonstrate commitment to their community.
  2. Identify an issue in their community to address.
  3. Be between the ages of 18-26.
  4. Be fluent in written and spoken English.
  5. Commit to attending the 10-day program and spending the following year aiming to execute their community project.
  6. Be eligible for appropriate visa and travel documentation.
  7. Have access to email and the Internet to allow for consistent communication with the MCW Global Team and Young Leaders Program alumni-mentor for the duration of the year-long program.

The program is based on 3 phases:

  1. Summer Program: An intensive, 10-day  program that facilitates leadership development, self-awareness, a deep understanding of global citizenship, and how to implement a project from beginning to end. The program is held in late July in New York City, New York, and Burlington, Vermont. In addition to working alongside MCW Global team members, alumni mentors, and volunteers, participants will also hear from a range of experts from academia, civil society, and the public and private sectors about their own community-action projects.
  2. Vision Planning: Project  Development: 12 month-phase, as participants come to the program with an idea of a community issue they want to address through the process of vision planning, which aims to transform passion into a tangible plan for change. During this process, participants will be able to put their local issues into a larger global context while exploring why they are in a unique position to make change happen. Participants will also determine which tools they need to apply to the plan, in order to make it actionable. After the program, Young Leaders are expected to further develop and/or implement their plan in collaboration with their alumni mentors.
  3. Alumni Mentorship and Ongoing Support: 12 month-phase, to further develop and implement their vision plans, Young Leaders are paired with alumni mentors, who guide them at the summer program toward creating an actionable plan. 


  1. MCW Global will cover program and flight costs.
  2. MCW Global will also cover costs during the summer program (July 21- July 30, 2020), including housing, food, travel to and from the summer program venues, and any necessary supplies.
  3. All participants are required to pay for on-the-ground costs, including passport, visa, and in-country ground transportation fees. (Not applicable for U.S. based participants.).

Required Documentation:

All following documents besides application itself should be in English: 

  1. Resume: Not be more than 1 page, and suggested to be prepared in Times New Roman, 12 font, with 1-inch margins.
  2. Two letters of recommendation: Should come from people who know an applicant's work ethic and commitment to their community. Friends and family members aren't eligible. Recommenders should state their name, position, and relationship to the applicant at the top of the letter. The letter should be on official letterhead, signed and dated.
