The Gulf is booming with new social initiatives and programs. There is much opportunity in the region and it is very exciting to be a part of.
Take the 3-day Youth Leadership Bridge Program to be held in Bahrain from 20-22 October, a good example of these types of initiatives.
A group of 50 high school students will be learning about ethical leadership and leading through social impact. Co-organized by 3BL Associates and the Bahrain Chapter of the Young Arab Leaders, the program aims to introduce the students to social enterprise and then help them come up with their own social action project to address local, regional or global social issues.
Our own Rama Chakaki would be speaking about social enterprise and the Baraka ventures. Rama will also help these students brainstorm their own social action projects, engaging and inspiring the young minds.
Great initiative, looking forward to hear the outcomes!
