Our society faces many challenges. That’s why we need need responsible leaders who have the future of our world in mind and the right competencies at hand to build it. NaLDS sharpens your awareness for yourself. It enables you to gain new perspectives on yourself and to deduce maxims for your own way of life. Learn to lead yourself better - to be able to lead others better.
What is this project all about?
The National Leadership Development Seminar is a seven-day conference for emerging and active leaders of student organisations.
NaLDS is hosted by the German chapter of the international student's initiative AIESEC. NaLDS provides a space for its participants to go on a guided journey to themselves. The journey is guided by experiences facilitators. Our participants sharpen the awareness for themselves, gain new perspectives and deduce maxims for their own way of life on this journey.
NaLDS enables the participants to lead themselves better. Through this they increase their leadership skills not just for future leadership positions within AIESEC but also beyond in the society.
What is the project goal and who is the project for?
The project is for students between 18 and 29 who are active members of AIESEC or are involved in other student or non-profit organisations.
The goals of the conference are:
- You accept yourself as the person you are.
- You understand your own needs, values and fears.
- You understand your passions and wishes for the future and know how you want to contribute to a better future.
Why would you support this project?
NaLDS is the place where change becomes visible. Former participants rave about the positive impact NaLDS had on their lives even years after the conference. In the past years the conference was partly sponsored by the Germany government. Unfortunately, this year our grant application was rejected. In order to realise the conference, we need 25.000€. We already applied for other grants, but in order to be on the safe side, we want use different ways to secure the financing.
Support us and enable a next generation to participate on NaLDS. As NaLDS celebrates its 25th anniversary this year, we ask all alumni of NaLDS but also from AIESEC to support this great conference.
