Yet, peace and socio-economic progress remain elusive to many. In times of cascading, interlinked global crises, leadership is not only expected but demanded of international civil servants operating across the multilateral sphere. It is to be exercised at all levels, thereby concerning not just senior personnel, but also youth aspiring to pursue an impactful career within the UN system and other International Organizations (IOs).
The Young Leaders Boot Camp equips participants with the tools to kick-start their career in the UN system and other IOs. Over the course of two weeks, participants join an international faculty of experts on the ITCILO Turin Campus, honing the core competencies expected of officers seeking to leave a lasting, positive impact in the contexts in which they operate.
The Young Leaders Boot Camp welcomes undergraduate, graduate students and young professionals seeking to acquire the skills necessary to pursue a career in the UN system and other IOs. The ITCILO welcomes applications from participants who uphold the mission and values of the United Nations and who are thus comfortable in a multicultural setting.
