Graduation Ven y Verás: Social Experiences Laboratory

The Isabel la Católica School of Government and Leadership Celebrates the First Graduating Class of its “Ven y Verás: Social Experiences Laboratory” Programme

Madrid, 20 June – The Isabel la Católica School of Government and Leadership proudly announces the culmination of the “Come and See: Social Experiences Laboratory” programme, urging students to apply what they have learned and offering continuous support to drive transformative initiatives and/or projects. This innovative programme has provided a valuable opportunity for young professionals and university students with a vocation for public service to engage directly with various social realities and gain experience in project design and presentation.

The “Ven y Verás” programme, inspired by the gospel “Come and You Will See” from John 1:35-42, is an initiative of the Isabel la Católica School of Government and Leadership in collaboration with several organisations committed to social change, community well-being, and purposeful leadership. Throughout the programme, participants have strengthened values such as encounter, empathy, community leadership, and commitment to the most vulnerable, which are essential for the formation of future leaders dedicated to the common good.

The closing ceremony, held on 18 June 2024 at 19:30 in Building E, Pecera, was an opportunity to celebrate achievements, reflect on the experiences lived, and establish a network that will continue working for social and community development.

“If I do not give my life, there is no possible fruit, whether I see it or not,” said María de los Angeles Muñoz, Executive Director of the school, during the closing event. She took the opportunity to thank the Nemesio Diez Foundation and the co-organising entities of the programme and their representatives: José María del Corral from the Scholas Ocurrentes Foundation, Laura Morosini from the Laudato Si Movement, Jesús De Alba from the Passion for Man – Bocatas Association, and Nuria López de la Hoz from the Apsuria Foundation. She also extended her gratitude to the organisations that participated by providing meeting spaces, such as Francisco de Vitoria University, for opening their doors to initiatives that aim to educate for transformation.
