Unleash the leader in you!
Conducted by Harvard Mentors trained by the Leadership Institute at Harvard College, Harvard Youth Lead the Change transforms high school students like you into the confident problem-solvers, collaborators and communicators, who will solve global issues and lead the change of tomorrow.
Over the 3 day course, students work in a mentor-led group to understand a global issue – whether it is climate change, mental health, or poverty – and develop a social change project to address it. On finishing the program, there is an opportunity to receive mentorship for an entire year, to implement their project.
What makes the workshop unique is that our mentors are not lecturers, but current students of Harvard University who have garnered invaluable experience and training at a young age, and know what it takes to implement social change. But perhaps more importantly, they understand the nuances and challenges of growing up in the 21st century. Hence, they break down intimidating age-based authority structures and become relatable advisors and friends to you, through a plethora of hands-on activities!
The workshop is in extremely high demand and has traveled across the world to places like Japan, Myanmar, Colorado, Dubai, and Puerto Rico.

Meet your Harvard Mentors
YLC is led by Harvard undergraduate students who are leaders in their own communities. Differentiating this program are the student teachers and their youthful perspective on leadership development. Reliable and relatable, the teachers serve as advisors and friends to the students, breaking down intimidating age-based authority structures. With tremendous enthusiasm for both teaching and learning, the teaching team constantly learns from the students, adapts to their interests and needs, and builds lasting relationships that continue after the program through formal and informal mentorship opportunities.
