Commonwealth100 – free online leadership programme for young people

Commonwealth100 is a free, online leadership programme that equips the next generation with 21st century leadership skills.

Using an interactive platform, you will work with a diverse group of young leaders from across the Commonwealth to explore Open Source Leadership: a new leadership model co-created with over 1,000 young Commonwealth leaders.

Commonwealth100 is open to young leaders, who are from a Commonwealth country, or who currently live, work or study in a Commonwealth country.

Commonwealth100 Programme Outcomes–
  • Produce a more socially-conscious generation of leaders
  • Create a network of young leaders in touch with each other
  • Foster current and future global partnerships between young leaders
  • Frame a fresh, bold, principled, networked Commonwealth of the future

Using an online platform, you will hear stories from senior and emerging leaders who have had to lead complex change.

You will take part in interactive exercises and discussions with peers from across the Commonwealth. And you will read compelling articles, which explore the skills you need to be successful in the 21st century.

All participants who complete the programme will receive the Open Source Leadership Badge, which can be used as a record of your achievement on your CV or online profiles.

The programme lasts for two weeks, and can be completed flexibly, in your own time.
