ALMATY, Kazakhstan, Aug. 3, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- The Bulat Utemuratov Foundation has allocated $5 million for its five-year Young Leaders program to develop leadership skills among students in grades 5-11 in Kazakhstan.
Throughout the school year, students attend elective classes and participate in monthly mini-lectures and specialized training sessions. They also learn to use their interpersonal skills, including leadership, critical thinking, communications, public speaking, teamwork, project management, and negotiation. To date, more than 24,000 students from 110 participating schools have completed the Foundation's leadership training courses.
Held in Almaty, the annual Young Leaders Forum was attended by more than 500 students and teachers. The students had the opportunity to present and discuss the projects they have been working on and the Bulat Utemuratov Foundation announced the three winners who will receive support from their dedicated fund.
The winning projects were selected from nearly 1,500 entries. This year's winners aim to provide valuable learning experiences and include a pottery workshop, a history of Kazakhstan in comic format, and a project facilitating access to career guidance services.
Marat Aitmagambetov, Director of the Bulat Utemuratov Foundation, commented: "I am proud to see the Young Leaders Forum program continue to grow and inspire students across Kazakhstan. The three winning projects from this year's Forum showcase the creativity and thought innovative development of our young leaders and demonstrate the impact this program can have on their education and personal development. We are committed to supporting the next generation of leaders in Kazakhstan and look forward to seeing the continued success of the program in the years to come."
