About the Youth Leadership Network

The Youth Leadership Network are leadership development programs for high school students in Abu Dhabi. Through weekly workshops, both programs work to help girls and boys gain technical and soft skills to engage, grow, and lead. This year's program will specifically focus on leadership and cultural preservation.

The Youth Leadership Network functions on a peer-to-peer workshop model, addressing practices such as self-awareness, critical thinking, habit-building, teamwork, and project learning. NYUAD students serve as mentors to create an inclusive, supportive space that enables dialog and growth, contributing to greater confidence and self-esteem.

This free, in-person program is open to boys and girls grades 9-12 (years 10-13). The program will run from October 30 to November 26 and consists of five workshops taking place at NYUAD’s campus. The Network will include 30 university facilitator mentors, working in smaller groups across 100 school-aged youth participants.
