International Leadership programme for Global Changemakers 2019 in Kenya (Self Funded & bursary scheme)

The International Leadership Programmes take the form of a 12-day intensive training, where participants from many different cultures, religions and socio-economic backgrounds come together to form an international learning community.

The programme provides an opportunity to experiment with new models, creating a holistic view of the world we live in that is underpinned by the need for shared values and an awareness of our ultimate interconnection. Programmes are run for 18 – 35-year-olds who are able to participate fully in an English-language programme.

WYSE International is a charity that works with emerging leaders from all over the planet who are inspired to make the world a better place. WYSE provide leadership education and ongoing coaching support that is delivered by highly experienced professionals on a pro bono basis. Over 30 years WYSE has worked with thousands of emerging leaders from over 115 countries, supporting them to take their visions into action.

Bursaries and Funding Support:

  • The programme is delivered by our international team of highly experienced leadership development and education professionals. They provide their services on a pro-bono basis, meaning WYSE can offer full tuition scholarships to all selected participants. Along with the coaching which is offered after the programme, this in kind donation of services from the staff team has been valued at over £7500 per participant.
  • The final cost to participants is £990 to cover food, accommodation and administration. As part of our efforts to include as many young leaders as possible from diverse backgrounds, WYSE provides a bursary scheme for those in most need to support the costs of their programme fees. The bursary scheme is highly competitive and only covers a proportion of the £990 programme fee (normally ranging between 20% and 45% of the programme fee)
