The Young Leaders Programme gathers each year 20 high profile regional young leaders with a clear two-fold goal: to promote and advance progressive leadership within society; and to develop the regional network of Aspen Fellows, based on shared values and common interests. This programme is designed for people who have the potential, interest and determination to exercise leadership to the highest standards of civic and corporate responsibility and according to the ethical values on which Aspen is based. For this reason, a programme is offered which challenges people to think about the fundamental concepts on which our society is founded. It also makes participants reflect to the challenges and conflicts that leaders must face in deciding polices and strategies for their organizations and their communities in today’s world.
The Program addresses people between the ages of 25 and 35 having achieved significant professional positions and accomplished results within their area of activity. Candidates should have demonstrated leadership potential, a record of initiative and entrepreneurship and a proven civic interest. We welcome candidates from: Albania, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Georgia, Hungary, Kosovo, Macedonia, Moldova, Montenegro, Romania, Serbia, Turkey and Ukraine.
The program consists of four modules in Romania (The Aspen Seminar, Modern Leadership, Leadership Challenges Today, and Community Service). Participants are required to have a high level of English fluency, as it is the working language of the program; the Institute will cover accommodation, meals, moderation costs and reading materials, leaving participants to only cover their transportation expenses.
Nominations can be made by submitting the following documentation in English: the Nomination Form, a letter of recommendation and the candidate’s CV together with a letter of intention. The file is to be sent to Ms. Catalina Rata at firstname.lastname@example.org by January 27th, 2014. Interviews will take place between 17 and 23 February in Bucharest.
