The Certificate in Youth and Community Leadership (CertYCL) builds on UC’s expertise and reputation for humanitarian work and social activism.
Students will develop introductory leadership skills and explore global issues they are passionate about resolving, with the opportunity to carry out group projects in the local community.
This programme is an especially good option for working professionals and those already in leadership positions, or students who do not want to commit to the full bachelor’s degree.
