CURRENT YCC INITIATIVE - LEAD PROGRAMME
Leadership, Education And Development (LEAD) Programme is an academic project providing talented Ukrainian students with an opportunity to spend ten days in London in order to gain exposure to and insight into the professional environment, work ethics and corporate culture of the UK’s leading institutions in the public and private sectors. Through attendance of topical presentations, participation in workshops, case studies and group projects, students hone their communication, organisation and project management skills, and explore concepts of transparency, compliance, and public governance. LEAD endeavours to support and develop young people who wish to contribute to the future development of Ukraine by implementing social initiatives or pursuing a public sector career. Through the Programme they have a chance to learn from the best Western practices and to apply this knowledge towards improvement and optimisation of the processes and systems currently in place in their home country. LEAD was created in 2014 (former name Summer Experience Programme) by members of the Young City Club and is now in its second year of running. It is lead by Stas Suprunenko, Chairman of YCC, and project coordinators Polina Poluneeva and Iryna Tandura.
