What is Morocco Future Leaders Program?
Association Anoual works on many different projects that inspire growth of the country with the aim of educating and empowering Moroccan youth. One of which is called Morocco Future Leaders, which is a project in partnership with the US Embassy in Morocco.
The purpose behind Morocco Future Leaders is to train the next generation of young leaders aged between 18 and 30 in a particular region of Morocco, and to develop their leadership, communication, and innovation skills. Most importantly, this is an opportunity to help youth build project ideas that would lead to social impact, and serve as an advocate for the voices and needs of Moroccans.
The first edition targeted 30 youth from different cities and areas in northern Morocco, based on their leadership potential and engagement in creating a social impact in their communities. This year, the second edition targeted 30 young leaders from the region of Fes-Meknes, who have passion and vision for a better and sustainable Morocco.
How does Association Anoual implement Morocco Future Leaders Project?
Morocco Future Leaders is a 5 months training program. Each month, the candidates participate in a two-day training and engage in several workshops in order to expand their knowledge, boost their creativity and be equipped with the necessary tools to develop their social project ideas. The four-weekend workshops focus on specific themes including Introduction to leadership, Need Identification, Budget and Fundraising, and Communication/Marketing your Idea through social networks delivered by highly professional trainers. In their final weekend, the participants attend trainings on public speaking and pitching skills which they will use for their final pitches in front of a jury when they finalize and present their project proposals. Based on innovation and impact prospects, participants will receive prizes including financing and mentorship to realize their projects.
