Application Deadline: November 1, 2021

The Asia Pacific Leadership Program brings together diverse individuals who want to co-create a future that is peaceful, prosperous, and just. Through place-based learning that is experiential and transformational, APLP fellows practice leadership strategies that enhance personal, team, and community effectiveness. Fellows reflect on what kind of leadership today’s world needs, and build the capacities needed for such leadership. 

The APLP Approach:

  • Place-Based: Focuses on leadership in context and builds on communities’ diversity and abundance
  • Experiential: Supports Fellows as they practice leadership together, reflect on results, and refines their strategies for greater impact 
  • Transformational: Fosters individual and collective growth for emerging and established leaders 

For 20 years, we have been cultivating leaders who are motivated and capable of creating positive impacts in the Asia Pacific region and beyond. Incoming Fellows join a network of 650 APLP alumni from 45 countries across the globe.
