From July 28th to August 17th, 2019, our 3-week Learning Journey will take place in Tanzania. The Learning Journey goes through Arusha, Ngorongoro, and Zanzibar and concludes in Dar es Salaam.

Global and diverse talents

3-week Learning Journey in Tanzania

On the Learning Journey, you and your peers build relationships, forming a life-long YGP Talent Network. You will learn from and inspire each other, engaging in mind opening learning activities, adventures, lectures and daily facilitated reflections. On the 3-week Learning Journey, within our intuitive learning architecture, you will have the opportunity to:

  • Network with global talents and train intercultural understanding and emotional intelligence
  • Visit global corporations and gain an insight on how they create shared value
  • Learn about climate change, circular economy, human rights and the SDGs
  • Discover the culture, history, opportunities and challenges of the region
  • Engage with talented youth from SOS Children’s Village
  • Meet up with young elite entrepreneurs passionate about changing their communities
  • Learn about biodiversity, the human vs. nature conflict and explore the Tanzanian wildlife


All participants will be assigned a day on the Learning Journey, where they are expected to act as co-mentors, assisting the official YGP Learning Journey Mentor. Co-mentors are meant to take joint responsibility for the day’s activities and the group dynamics on the specific day.
