Youth Lead the Change is a leadership development program created by professors of the Harvard Business School, Harvard Law School and the Harvard School of education, and held by Harvard students. Held for students in grades 9 - 12, the program aims at empowering students and unlocking their leadership capabilities as they develop tangible solutions to global problems. Over the five-day course, the students work in a group of five to understand a global issue and develop a social change project to address it. Through this program, students learn about core leadership skills such as collaboration, public speaking, time management, and self-knowledge.

The Harvard trainers also hold one-on-one sessions with students who continue to serve as mentors after the program. On finishing the program, there is an opportunity of complete mentorship for an entire year, to implement their project. Presented by The Leadership Institute at Harvard College (LIHC), this Harvard student organisation aims to provide and promote leadership development opportunities across the world.

Unleash the Leader in You!

Harvard YLC Winter 2019

YLC Winter 2019 (January 4-8) was a week-long leadership conference for high school students from grade 9-12. This program was attended by 60 students from 30 different schools, 10 cities and 4 countries. Throughout the week, students create a social change project while learning concrete leadership and entrepreneurial skills.

At the end of the Youth Lead the Change conference, all YLC trainees who successfully presented their social change project were awarded a certificate from the Leadership Institute of Harvard University. In addition, the students received a one year mentorship from these 5 Harvard students.

Many students in these 5 days had achieved more than just laying out the blue print for their project. Some had already partnered up with NGO's, some were able to get dogs adopted, some conducted an interactive session with the elderly in their community, some got high number of followers along with posts/comments on their social media pages, some were able to raise funds for their cause and some designed their own pamphlets and websites.

All these changes in such a short time were impressive and we only hope that they continue with these projects and reach greater heights in bringing about a change in their community.

In the ever-competitive university admissions world, it is not enough to just get high SAT/GMAT/GRE scores. Top global universities recognize that an exceptional candidate not just has a great academic background, but also has other critical skills such as leadership, team work and a sense of purpose.  

Ivy Admissions Summit is an attempt to share an insight into how admissions officers review applications and what sets students apart through an opportunity to speak directly with graduates from Ivy League & other top global universities.

Through panel discussions and Q&A sessions, the speakers would respond to questions on an applicant's mind. Our goal is to leave the applicants feeling empowered by sharing information on developing a pre-application strategy, writing powerful essays as well as how to finance your degree . 

The event is open for high school students, parents, college students as well as young professionals looking to study abroad at the undergraduate or graduate level. So we would request you to share this invite widely, so applicants could benefit from this opportunity.
