On Wednesday, August 31, 2016, The McCain Institute hosted the 2015 Next Generation Leaders’ graduation ceremony to recognize the group’s successful completion of a year of intense professional and personal development in order to become character-driven leaders who shape the world through detailed Leadership Action Plans.
The McCain Institute’s flagship Next Generation Leaders program is designed to identify, train, network and empower a diverse group of emerging, character-driven leaders with a core focus on values, ethics and leadership.
A key aspect of the program is each Leader’s preparation of an individual Leadership Action Plan. Aimed at defining the tangible steps and actions the Leaders will take to bring about positive change in their home societies, the Action Plan becomes the central project of the Leaders development year. Each Next Generation Leader will take this plan home for implementation upon completion of the program.
