DREAMS Global Youth Leadership Network: Project Outline

What is GYLN?

It is a platform for emerging and prospective youth leaders (from various DREAMS’ Chapters) to learn and develop their leadership skills while networking with equally aspiring individuals around the globe. In contemporary society, many youths are at a loss when it comes to building meaningful relationships with others, with this initiative the youths will get an opportunity for self-growth and building meaningful relationships with the others in the network. The GYLN creates a safe and holistic space for youth to share their experiences and knowledge, by promoting the three pillars of GLYN: Leadership, Personal Empowerment and Social Empowerment.

Objectives​:​-

●  Connect transnationally/globally to engage in multicultural interactions

●  Innovate/Promote new community service initiatives

●  Promote Entrepreneurship and Professional Development

●  Share personal leadership strategies/experiences

●  Enhance individual leadership styles

What Do we Do

The Global Youth Leadership Network will have Monthly Meetings via a virtual platform (Zoom/Google Meets). Meetings will be 45-60 minutes at most. During meetings, members will discuss their personal experiences, knowledge, and ideas (in the light of the topic that are being observed) in order to inspire others, understand different perspectives, and share strategies to widen personal knowledge base for better decisions, actions and leadership.

Activities and Meetings will include having globally renowned leaders/speakers from different walks of life to share their experiences and knowledge to interact in order to enlighten the overall experience of youth leaders throughout meetings.
