Lead your future
Sign up as coach for the Lead Your Future program.
On November 15th we celebrated the Kick Off of the Lead Your Future program together with girls of the future generation leaders. The Lead Your Future program is an initiative of Lead Your Future and the Erasmus University that aims to increase the opportunities of the new generation of young women and their leadership potential. It does so by having 5000 young women coached by 750 students of the Erasmus University. And you can become coach!
What: Invest in female leadership and help empower young girls take lead of their future. During the program, the coaches and girls are offered several activities that helps them in recognising opportunities and in making choices with respect to their lifestyle, study and career. Coaches will be inspired by prominent power women from both the business and political sectors. Besides that, coaches get the opportunity to further develop their soft skills through coaching sessions and meeting their potential future employers.
Why: By becoming a coach, you will leave a great impact on society, meet several role models and get in contact with future employers who highly value women leadership. You will also get trained by professional companies as Aberkyn and Train-the-Trainer, a great opportunity to improve your skills.
Moreover, you will receive an official certificate of participation that will be acknowledged by the university, the municipality of Rotterdam and several multinationals.
Who: All students of the Erasmus University Rotterdam, including EUC and EMC students, both national and international who are here for more than three months.
When: Sign up before December 20. Throughout December we will inform you with further details. In January the students will be trained by professionals, and from January until April together with another coach, you will be assigned to a group of ten to fifteen young women. In April you will be invited to attend our big Summit with inspiring world leaders.
