UnionAID is seeking homestays
UnionAID is seeking expressions of interest from people interested in hosting one of our Mindanao Young Leaders, who will be based in Wellington from August – December 2019
The Mindanao Young Leaders Programme (MYLP) is a four-month programme managed by UnionAID in collaboration with International Alert and Victoria University of Wellington and funded by the New Zealand Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade. The programme will help young community leaders from Mindanao further develop their knowledge, skills and confidence so they can be leaders in the sustainable and peaceful development of their communities and the wider Mindanao area.
It builds leadership in several ways: by exposing participants to new ideas and institutions in New Zealand and inspiring them to think critically about what they can apply to the challenges in their own communities. The programme will build participants, research, evaluation, presentation, communication and analytical skills. Participants will work together on a cross ethnic and cross-religious basis and take an inclusive approach to build unity, understanding and equality at all levels in society.
