Tibetan Youth Leadership Program
2018 Dates TBD
This summer program aims to nurture youth leaders who will not only become the leaders of the Tibetan community in the future, but who will also act now to convert their energy and convictions about issues affecting Tibet into a powerful force for activism and change. Through workshops, discussions, and hands-on activities, participants were taught the art of leadership. The training was specifically geared to meet the need of the Tibetan community for a core group of young, articulate Tibetan leaders. ICT provided travel expenses as well as arranged for accommodation and food during the training period.
