Youth Leadership Conference Scholarships

The 19th International Youth Leadership Conference is a week-long youth forum on world politics, international relations and justice.

In January it will be welcoming 100 students from 40 different countries for an open-minded exchange of diverse perspectives on contemporary global challenges.

The IYLC blends social interaction with cultural and academic components to create a cohesive experience that promotes cross-cultural youth participation and socially responsible leadership.

The International Youth Leadership Conference proactively involves its participants in

  • Simulation of the UN Security Council Meeting
  • International Criminal Court Mock Pre-Trial
  • Model European Parliament Proceedings
  • Visits to foreign embassies, Senate of the Czech Republic, other governmental and non-governmental institutions
  • Group debates and panel discussions on international security and justice, environmental sustainability, non-discrimination, leadership ethics and responsible policy-making
  • Meetings and banquet dinners with leading experts, diplomats, politicians and businessmen

    In the coming months, Civic Concepts International will be awarding 30 scholarships in a form of substantial conference fee reduction to students who come from unprivileged communities around the world.

    It hopes that these scholarships will enable students from Sub-Saharan Africa, South-East Asia, Middle East, Latin America, the Carribeans, the Pacific and many other regions to attend the 19th International Youth Leadership Conference in Prague.
