On August 4th 2020, IDF Europe will be launching the first Youth Leadership Lab (YLL), an online-based leadership development programme specifically designed for young people (aged 18-30) with diabetes, who are passionate about diabetes issues and willing to make an impact at a local, national and European level. All of them have the strong support of their diabetes associations.
The Lab will be structured in 11 online 90-minute sessions, held by expert guest speakers and fellow diabetes advocates. The YLL will cover a period of four months, until December 14th 2020.
The Lab aims to be a space for co-creation and collaborative thinking, an experience that combines educational sessions, online physical activity and social interactions. With a strong focus on learning-by-doing and sharing experiences, the Lab will have the objective of supporting and empowering young emerging leaders, to provide high-quality training and to create strong and lasting connections among the participants.
The YLL is not a standalone event. It is also an important part of IDF Europe’s wide-ranging activities specifically aimed at the youth. To know more about other IDF Europe’s youth initiatives, read here.
