Commonwealth100 Fully-funded Online Leadership Programme

Commonwealth100 Fully-funded Online Leadership Programme

Deadline: Ongoing

Applications are invited for the Commonwealth100 Online Leadership Course. Commonwealth100 is a new, free, crowd-sourced, experiential, online leadership development programme that aims to equip a new generation of young leaders from the Commonwealth with skills relevant to the 21st century, with the Open Source Leadership model.

Open Source Leadership was crowdsourced from and co-created by 1000 young leaders across the Commonwealth in 2017 and identifies five key areas of development crucial for 21st century leadership. Open Source Leaders are: Awake, Interconnected, Trustworthy, Quick, and Accessible.

Commonwealth100 programme outcomes include:

  • A new generation of young leaders to come through who have the commitment and ability to bridge divides
  • Stronger links across regions, backgrounds and generations (through our webinars and alumni offerings), which help them to work better together
  • A broader base of leadership in Commonwealth cities and countries
  • Framing a fresh, bold, principled, networked Commonwealth of the future

Benefits

  • Using an interactive platform, you will work with a diverse group of young leaders from across the Commonwealth to explore Open Source Leadership: a new leadership model co-created with over 1,000 young Commonwealth leaders.
  • This is your opportunity to gain practical skills for the future, reflect upon your own leadership style, and move forward with a new perspective on how to make the most positive impact.
  • The course is also an opportunity to connect with and have meaningful discussions with diverse peers from around the world.
  • If you complete the course you can join the Common Purpose Alumni group on LinkedIn, a valuable opportunity to network with our wide network of leaders from around the globe.
  • As well, everyone who completes Commonwealth100 receives the Open Source Leadership Badge: an online badge you can use to set yourself apart, as a 21st Century leader. You can put the badge on your CV and online profiles.

Eligibility

  • Commonwealth100 is open to young people aged 18+ from across the Commonwealth
