Fully Funded Obama Leaders: Asia-Pacific Program is a one-year leadership development and civic engagement program that seeks to inspire, empower, and connect emerging leaders from across the Asia-Pacific region. This Asia-Pacific program will build on and connect with the Foundation’s inaugural international Leaders program in that launched in 2018 and brought together 200 emerging leaders from around the African continent for one-year leadership development and civic engagement training initiative.
Those selected as Obama Foundation: Asia-Pacific Leaders become members of a dedicated and self-sustaining community of changemakers in the Asia-Pacific region. Leaders are committed to ongoing learning through in-person gatherings and robust online engagement for a minimum of one year.
From December 10-14, 2019, the Leaders will participate in an intensive convening that includes plenary sessions, problem-solving workshops, leadership sessions, skill-building training, and opportunities to hear from and work with experts from the Asia-Pacific region and around the world.
