We believe in combining both  theoretical and experiential aspects of learning through the courses being offered.

Young Community Leadership Program: (YCLP) is designed to help college students to be better leaders and offer mentoring services for our DREAMS program in different parts of the world. Those who attend this program would be equipped with skills required for effective mentoring and growing into community leaders. They would learn how to collaborate with different organizations for a common goal, sustain the impact for the future and create more competent leaders for a better tomorrow.

Additionally, they will be introduced to a community intervention model (DREAMS) and will be trained on how to initiate and implement an action plan to make some substantial and sustainable positive difference in the life of those lower-performing teenagers. Mentoring, teamwork, leadership, organizational, communication, and social entrepreneurial skills constitute the targets areas of the program.
