Fifteen energetic Tibetan youths from all over the United States participated in ICT’s first Tibetan Youth Leadership Program, from March 9-11, 2001, in Washington, DC.

The program is designed to provide Tibetan youth exposure to different fields of activism, practical organizing skills, and opportunities necessary to become more effective leaders in their communities. The program features workshops; fieldtrips to Amnesty International, Capitol Hill, VOA and RFA; panel discussions, nonviolence and cross-cultural outreach, and special events emphasizing NGO networking, media and messaging, working with the US Congress and Administration, and organizing within the Tibetan community.
