The Young Transatlantic Leadership program (YTL) is a joined initiative of the Young Transatlantic Initiative, Canada Meets Germany Network e. V. and the German-Canadian Association (see the program info for details). It is a truly transatlantic immersive leadership exchange format between Canada and Germany. While aimed at building a sustainable network of (young) leaders, the program’s core element consists of two-week study trips to Germany and Canada on an annually rotating basis. Its participants are to be empowered to play an active role during and also after the program. The participating young leaders are strongly encouraged to keep the spirit of this exchange alive also after the respective visits by, for instance, becoming active members in one of the organizations partnering in this, assisting with the planning of future country visits and/or alumni events, collaborating with other community leaders and by taking any other initiatives to foster the transatlantic network. The program’s vision is to discover and bring together the next generation of young leaders who share a similar interest, enthusiasm and commitment for the transatlantic relationship.
