Why join Youth Week?
what to expect
You will receive preparation material in advance, including Social Project Cards for inspiration and audiovisual content so that you're familiar with the concepts in the programme.
At the Online Kick-Off Session, you'll meet fellow participants and facilitators, start working in country teams and share your questions for better tailoring of workshops.
During Youth Week itself, you will dive deep into discussion with experts on climate change, social entrepreneurship and more. You'll also develop a grassroots project that you can implement within six months of Youth Week.*
It's not all hard work—you can also expect (optional) meditation, informal talks, self-reflection, local hiking and cultural conversations!
*You do not have to have a project idea when you join.
In the six months following Youth Week, you will be paired with an experienced mentor to help you troubleshoot and stay on track as you implement your project. You can accomplish a lot in half a year!
You'll also be able to stay connected with the CCG alumni community for further feedback, friendship and future events.
