About Us
Young Leaders Projects focuses on developing visionary and socially responsible young leaders in Turkey. Young Leaders Projects offers innovative programs on Leadership, Careers, Entrepreneurship and Social Responsibility for young adults. Ranging from summer camps to weekend workshops, these interactive programs are designed for students to learn more about their talents and develop the skills to be successful in their personal, academic, and professional lives.

With the Young Leaders Projects interactive programs, students learn by doing. The programs include case studies, creative problem-solving seminars, presentations and outdoor exercises that focus on skills development through active participation. Most importantly, all of our programs are centred around students discovering their talents, learning new skills, making life-long friends and having fun while doing it!

Our programs focus on 5 key areas for personal and academic development:

1. Careers and Entrepreneurship
2. Leadership and Teambuilding
3. Creative and Innovative Thinking
4. Self-Awareness and Self-Confidence
5. Effective Communication and Goal-setting

Careers and Entrepreneurship: By creating and implementing career projects and business plans, students develop their business skills such as time-management, communication, marketing, budgeting and presentation techniques.

Leadership & Teambuilding Skills: Students engage in various challenging activities that develop and strengthen their leadership and teambuiding skills. Students learn the value of clear communication for leadership and teamwork.

Creative & Innovative Thinking: Students are challenged to think out-of-the-box to find creative and innovative solutions for business/economic problems and social/environmental issues.

Self-Awareness & Self-Confidence: Students discover their strengths and talents and develop these skills to use in their personal and academic lives. They also learn the importance of creating balance and maintaining a positive attitude. Students realize that developing self-confidence begins with self-awareness: knowing and believing in yourself.
