Why does LSS exist?
Many international organisations, representing various backgrounds and disciplines, often share similar goals to improve the skills of their members, knowledge transfer, continuity and internal communication.
The Leadership Summer School project was born to fulfil perceived needs related to development and/or improvement of their training culture, leaders readiness to manage their organisation and networking with diverse youth associations. This interdisciplinary event became a training platform for active youth volunteers.
Where and when?
We will be hosted at the Yeditepe Univeristy, in the Asian part of the city of Istanbul, Turkey from 16th to 25th July 2014.
What are we looking for?
We are looking for 60 highly motivated and active students and youth (aged 18 to 35) who will participate in a challenging learning event including a training program of 50+ working hours.
LSS is an intensive learning event and a networking platform, aiming at increasing skills and readiness of youth NGO leaders by sharing best practices and improving leadership skills.
LSS is designed to be a very practical non-formal learning experience that aims at fostering personal development, collaboration, as well as achieving a multiplier effect for the associations involved. As participants, you will attended training and workshop sessions, group work, case studies, simulation, debates, discussions and many others, which will help you improving your skills in different aspects of leadership.
