What do we mean by “leadership” ?
Leadership can be shown in many ways. A leader can be a role model for others, a unifying and persevering force, who helps others and stays motivated during difficult times. A leader is inclusive, accepting of differences, fostering teamwork and community spirit to advance projects that are important to them.
Being a leader is not only for individuals in positions of power; it can be an act of commitment, an act of growth, ac act of living. Leadership is a very broad term because everyone is a leader in their own way.
How to benefit from it ?
Candidates must demonstrate a desire to pursue their studies, show leadership skills, school/community involvement or a desire to pursue a dream or a passion.
The jury will analyze each application based on evaluation criteria, while making sure to be inclusive, encouraging diversity, ensuring gender parity and equitable socio-demographic representation.
Youth Fusion wishes to contribute to reducing the dropout rate by rewarding perseverance and highlighting student leadership.
