I International Program of European Catholic Leaders

From September 14th to November 23rd, 2023

The School of Government and Leadership is honored to collaborate in the design, teaching and financing of this program of the International Academy of Catholic Leaders.

The idea of this first edition is to identify, train and accompany youth from the Community of Madrid who have a vocation and objective conditions to become political, economic and social leaders. We have a scholarship system set up that can cover up to 100% of the cost of the program. Initially, the focus will be in Madrid, but over time, the experience will be replicated in other provinces of Spain and across Europe.

Features of the first edition of the program 

  • Duration: On Saturday each week for 9 weeks, starting on September 14th and concluding with a graduation on November 23rd, 2023.
  • Student body: young people from 18 to 35 years old with limited leadership experience in politics, business and civil society.
  • In collaboration with the International Academy of Catholic Leaders.
  • Scholarships of up to 100% of the cost of the program.
  • Content: all the content, as well as the registration form, can be found at the following link: https://liderescatolicos.es/

PURPOSE AND GOALS:

Shaping the mind through the transmission of the Christological, ecclesiological, and anthropological foundations of the Church's social doctrine.
