In the fall of 2014 and the spring of 2015, the Jeanne Sauvé Foundation sponsored the return of Fellows back to Sauvé House for a week of personal and professional development.

The Sauvé Encore! program – a key component of the Foundation’s Network pillar – is a unique opportunity to connect and collaborate across cohorts to advance public leadership on key global challenges.

The goal of Sauvé Encore! is to build on the skills and ideas Sauvé Fellows were exposed to during their time at Sauvé House. It is designed to contribute to their learning evolution, focusing particularly on how they can amplify their impact. Fellows will leave Montreal with a strong connection to the Foundation and each other after a week of collective learning, active reflection and strengthened leadership skills. The program is organized around one particular issue or theme, chosen on the basis of the relevant areas of convergent interest amongst Alumni.

“Sauvé Encore has been a truly transformative experience. I now feel motivated to tackle bigger challenges. I feel inspired by the new connections and the possibilities of collaboration with other Fellows on various projects. And I feel supported and confident about my future.” – Özlem ElgÜn Tillman (2006-07), Sauvé Encore! 2014
