The power of JUMP! Leadership Conferences is huge, the core reason being that they access and then enable local community members to take action.
The malleable nature of the conferences strikes one. There's one in Beijing, China focused on bringing youth from all socio-economic backgrounds together; another in Chiang Mai, Thailand focused on ethnically diverse participants who have experienced conflicts; and another one in Battambang, Cambodia focused on working with local educators from different provinces across Cambodia. The list goes on. These JLCs are a community driven process, and enable creative, real solutions to emerge.
The journey that a participant goes through enables them to discover themselves and build their community across differences, placing them at the cusp of tangible change-making.
