Academic Package

August 6-14, 2018
New Jersey & New York CitY

The Academic Package is designed for young leaders seeking to create innovative solutions to critical issues, but needing the guidance to jumpstart their ideas into action. Prior to coming to the seminar, participants will get a chance to work on a group project and receive guidance and advice from peer mentors by joining in the Peer Mentorship program. Before taking part at The 22nd Session of The Youth Assembly, participants benefit from an intensive university certificate-based program co-developed and delivered by Fairleigh Dickinson University (FDU), called the Social Venture for Sustainable Development, which aims to teach participants hands-on skills in creating and developing a social venture business project.
