Young leaders Programmes

UnionAID’s young leaders programmes bring young community leaders from Myanmar, Eastern Indonesia and Mindanao to Aotearoa/New Zealand every year. Participants learn about community development, democratic processes, Māori development, Te Tiriti o Waitangi, conflict resolution, sustainable development, gender justice and human rights.
Our programmes aim to build networks of highly skilled leaders who help contribute to the peaceful and just development of their communities and countries.
