Young Leaders Program
Participants come to the Young Leaders Access Program with an idea of an issue they want to address in their communities. During the 10-day retreat, this idea is turned into a “vision plan,” which lays out an innovative way of addressing the issue.
Young Leaders Access Program graduates have the opportunity to turn their vision plans into concrete projects by applying to the MCW Alumni Ventures Fund, which provides a year of start-up funding and mentorship to recipients.
MCW uses the cultural diversity of its participants as a unique opportunity to exchange ideas and build relationships.
An individual, who is aware of their impact locally and globally, who understands their actions affect others, and who has a mindset of belonging or connection to a group rather than just a physical connection.
