Centre de Recherche sur l’Anti-Corruption in partnership with Congo Leadership Initiative (CLI) will launch in coming months the Leadership Institute in several secondary schools in Uvira to train young Congolese leaders through an intensive leadership development curriculum, “The Leadership Institute”. The programme recruits talented Congolese youth from all fields of study and with different ambitions, and prepares them to become engines for change. The result is a cohort of skilled leaders who can spark real development.
How it works?
- Leadership Accelerator: The Leadership Accelerator is CLI’s original, flagship program. It is a concentrated, five-day leadership practicum. Young leaders are selected based on talent and leadership potential.
- Leadership Workshop: The Leadership Workshop is a concentrated version of the Leadership
Accelerator designed to take place over the course of two days. Young leaders are selected based on
talent and leadership potential.
- Leadership Institute: The Leadership Institute is a cutting edge, comprehensive curriculum that is groundbreaking in Congo. It launches with the Leadership Accelerator and continues with monthly meetings and life-long affiliation. Young leaders do not need to be selected to participate in the Leadership Institute and all youth are welcome.
|Theory of Change
A training program for talented Congolese youth that promotes virtuous leadership and teaches creative problem solving skills will equip young people to become dynamic, progressive leaders for the future. The network that forms around this training program will transform the latent potential of a new Congolese generation into a force for change at a local and national scale.
