PHASE 1

BUILDING MOMENTUM &
CREATING CHANGE

Our on-ground team will lead half-day boot camps in 8 different cities around Malaysia in hopes of sparking national civic engagement. We want to find the leaders of tomorrow and help them bring change today.

We will share valuable tools, knowledge, and expertise in ushering your causes to the national stage.

A limited number of community members will be chosen and this boot camp will serve as a recruitment process in identifying the brightest leaders throughout the country into Phase 2. Are you ready to give it a try?

PHASE 2

SPARKING NATIONAL
CIVIC ENGAGEMENT

Passionate individuals will be able to apply in teams of four to attend specially curated civic engagement and leadership workshops. The workshops will be run by some of the pioneers in civic engagement to equip the young leaders with the know-how to launch their own civic engagement campaigns.

Five final teams will be chosen by the end of Phase 2 to receive seed funding of RM 6,000 to help launch their campaigns.

PHASE 3

SCALING & SUSTAINING
IMPACT

The final stage is for scaling and sustaining impact on a national scale. This phase includes networking and the launch of a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC), which will serve as a Civic Engagement Toolkit and catalyst to create future civic leaders.

The MOOC is to be designed to empower the larger YSEALI members, with the knowledge from the program. To also share the impact being created by the campaign, we will be hosting a YSEALI Civic Engagement Showcase in Kuala Lumpur, targeted around September 2020. A winning team will be decided at this finale and be sent to attend the 2020 ASEAN Youth Conference that happens yearly in October and in Vietnam next year.
