Live out your passion and gain vital leadership skills through this 10-month virtual volunteering opportunity along with a global cohort

At Enabling Leadership Global Ambassador Program (ELGAP) we believe in the idea of engaging in transformative power of service to build the character and resilience of a leader.

The Enabling Leadership Global Ambassador Program (ELGAP) offers a unique opportunity for youth to have a close view of the life and challenges of their peers in the underdeveloped world and mentor a group of 10 students from India through skill-based volunteering and fundraising initiatives. 

  • As a mentor, you’ll play a crucial role in providing tutoring sessions, helping these kids improve their skills and gain confidence. Have one-on-one sessions with them to understand the personal/community-level challenges and get a chance to design social solutions 

 

  • Involve in fundraising activities to support the educational and developmental needs of these children. By organizing fundraising campaigns and initiatives, you’ll have the chance to make a tangible difference in their lives, providing them with resources and opportunities they may not otherwise have access to. Fundraising efforts will not only benefit the EL kids but also enhance your own leadership skills, as you learn to plan, organize, and execute impactful initiatives

  • The comprehensive skill development curriculum at ELGAP through its Play, Build, and Create model helps you cultivate medium specific skills. Football-based activities to promote teamwork, strategic thinking, and physical fitness. Participate in hands-on projects involving Lego blocks and design thinking principles, fostering collaboration and problem-solving skills. Tap into your creative potential by advocating for social change through music, learning to inspire and lead others while making a positive impact in your community

  • Conclude the program by participating in virtual events where you can showcase your skills. These events not only provide a platform for recognition but also serve as a valuable opportunity for personal and professional growth. Upon successful completion of the program, you’ll be recognized for your contributions and onboarded into the ELGAP alumni community, where you’ll continue to be part of a global network of youth leaders committed to making a difference in the world
