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.
