Are you an Algerian Youth Leadership Program alumni? Did the skills you gained in AYLP make a positive impact on you and your community? Do you want to inspire and empower youth in order to further affect your community? Now you can.

Sharik AYLP is a training-of-trainers program that will allow alumni of the Algerian Youth Leadership Program to spread the civic engagement and leadership skills that you learned in AYLP to other motivated youth in your region!  This all-expenses-paid program is open exclusively to Algerian Youth Leadership Program. If selected, you will gain effective training techniques that will allow you to work with another AYLP alumni to deliver leadership, civic engagement and project planning training in your own neighborhood, multiplying your impact on your community.

Participants in the all-expenses-paid Sharik AYLP program will receive: 

  • Five days of intensive training that will give selected AYLP alumni engaging, novel techniques to effectively train others in their communities
  • The knowledge and ability to create applications and to recruit, interview and select candidates
  • Effective feedback and ongoing in-person and remote support as they plan and provide their own trainings
  • Access to an exclusive network of curriculum and training resources
  • Powerful networking opportunities with AYLP alumni from other editions and regions
  • All the resources (capital for training supplies, lunches, transportation and venue) necessary to conduct their own four-session training for ten participants from their community
  • A trainers certificate from Le Centre de Ressources pour les Organisations de la Société Civile (le CROSC)
  • The power to (further) affect your community and those in it in a positive, sustained way!

Those who apply must: 

  • Be an alumni from AYLP 2019 or earlier (past youth and adult participants are welcome to apply!)
  • Be willing and able to work with another alumnus or alumna from their region to conduct a four-session, ten-participant training in your community  within 4-6 months of the conclusion of the training of trainers (don’t worry-we’ll give you all the resources, support and tools that you need to make an impact!)
