LEAP (Leadership in Action Programme) was launched with huge success last year and registration is now open for this year’s course taking place on the weekend of 30 August to 1 September.
The objective of the programme is to equip young people with the skills they need to provide development opportunities to create positive change. It is aimed at rising stars and future leaders of JCI. Topics covered include understanding your organisation, understanding yourself and others, running an effective team and leadership and motivation.
