The (International Olympic Committee) IOC Young Leaders programme

About the IOC Young Leaders programme

The IOC Young Leaders programme is delivered over four years to give participants sufficient time to go through the phases of developing a social business/project that provides a localised sport-based solution to a pressing challenge in their respective communities.

Each year of the programme is designed around the development of the young leader and their sport-based social business/project.

Overall, the learning journey encompasses a wide range of subjects and experts, in areas such as human centred-design, prototyping, ecosystem mapping, leadership skills, customer segmentation, public relations, fundraising, impact measurement, user research, user testing, digital communications and finance.

The four-year programme has a blended approach, combining virtual sessions and discussions, community spaces and learning through in-person and networking experiences.

Most of the monthly learning will be online, and will include expert sessions, sharing of practical resources, connect group sessions and self-directed learning activities.

What each IOC Young Leader receives:

  • CHF 10,000 seed-funding delivered over the four years
  • Monthly expert-led workshops and guidance
  • Access to thought-leaders and inspirational figures
  • Exclusive invitation to attend the bi-annual IOC Youth Summit
  • Invitations to attend and speak at global gatherings
  • Networking and knowledge-sharing opportunities
  • Leadership coaching
  • A dedicated team on hand to provide support
