Public Leadership Skills for the 21st Century Program

Jeanne Sauvé Foundation is inviting Sauvé Fellows to take part in a one-month Mentoring program for young leaders from Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Sauvé Fellow Svjetlana Markovic, with the support of Sauvé Fellow Edison Huynh, is implementing a project entitled “Public Leadership Skills for the 21st Century” with the aim to connect, engage and empower young women and men from B&H to take up a role in tackling local, regional and global challenges.

Through an intensive three-day Boot Camp based on Jeanne Sauvé Public Leadership Program, in addition to leadership encounter sessions, the participants will be able to develop knowledge and leadership skills necessary to understand, recognize and respond to existing political, social and economic inequalities in B&H.  Additionally, the Mentorship program will connect emerging leaders from Bosnia with Sauvé Fellows from all over the world in order to network, exchange knowledge, skills, and opinions on issues relevant for leadership in different areas today the 21st century.

This Mentorship Program will take place after the Leadership Boot camp with each participant being paired up with Fellows with similar career interests. Through several Skype sessions in April and May 2017, participants will have the chance to enhance knowledge and develop skills on crucial topics to address key local and global challenges. Meanwhile, mentors will have a chance to play a significant role in a young leader’s career development as well as gain a unique insight into the context of Bosnia and Herzegovina and Western Balkans.

If you are interested in being a mentor, send us your contact details to: [email protected] , before March 20th, 2017.
