What Students Said

The Young Leaders Programs have been running at Trinity since 2001. The students who participate in these programs not only experience a taste of university life and their pathways to tertiary education, but also what it means to be a global citizen.

The learning that takes place outside of the classroom is just as important as the learning that takes place during classes. The students learn from each other about different cultures, values and languages. Our experience in running these programs is supported by our genuine belief that the opportunities offered to students will not only benefit them individually, but will also benefit the wider community. 

What the students said


Stepping out of my comfort zone to attend an overseas leadership oriented program such YLP, has been the most influential decision I have made. YLP offers us the platform to interact with culturally diverse students, and granted us a very positive perspective for future challenges. What we cherished the most about the YLP family was the motivation we received from one another to cultivate the confidence to build a strong global network and develop everlasting friendships.

The staff, mentors and fellow young leaders generated a wonderful home-away-from- home atmosphere throughout the program. I have acquired lifelong leadership skills in public speaking and developed great confidence and resilience. I'd strongly recommend you grab the chance to experience the amazing Young Leaders Program.

Going to YLP really helped me to choose the course I want to take at college. It let me meet many amazing people who shared the same likes as me that I would have never met. During my time, there I made many memories that I will never forget.

The program has left me with a better idea of what subjects are available to me in the future and what paths I can take in university. It has given me opportunities to make new friends from different countries, test my limits, understand myself and discover my strengths.

Attending the Young Leaders Program has indubitably helped elucidate my possible career options and guided me through the required skills to achieve my best. My time there was transient, but the incredible memories and friends that I've made are perpetual. I started this camp as an aspiring student and I left as a Young Leader, ready to make a difference in the world.

Being a part of this Young Leaders family has taught me things I never would have dreamed  learning. These experiences, concepts, and new ways of thinking will shape and define me as a person. The people I have met and got to know have transcended my ideas of what human beings are capable of. They have inspired my way of seeing the world and the possibilities it holds.

For me, I think YLP’s energy level is always on its exponential growth, and this is what I appreciate deeply. The spirit, sincerity and sportsmanship carried by each and every virtual soul in YLP is the best treasure I’ve found. The stories behind all the participants of YLP shows me what life really means.

The mentors and surrounding students are extremely accommodating, they assist and encourage you to diverge from the norm and step out of your comfort zone, to become a leader, which I am truly grateful for. This program is inspiring and exceptional in accelerating the acquirement of the necessary skills to achieve and fulfil future personal and academic ambitions.

The Young Leaders Program has given me a sense reassurance of who I want to become in the future. If you’re having second thoughts about joining the program, then don’t. Just take a leap of faith and believe me, it is something that you will never ever regret.

This program gave me exposure to an unknown country and gave me the strength to believe in myself. For me, the Young Leaders Programs were a once in a lifetime chance that really transformed me into who I was supposed to be, rather than who I was.

I loved everything! The Young Leaders Programs are about more than listening to lectures – it is a holistic experience. I learnt more about myself and other people. It is one of the best programs I've ever done.
