Economic Seminars for Future Leaders

Donor Center for International Private Enterprise

In 1998, Youth Alternative launched Economic Seminars for Future Leaders project aimed at increasing young leaders' understanding of the principles of market economy. During 1998-1999 Youth Alternative organized six seminars. These seminars introduced Western economic values to young people who would likely play future leading roles in Ukraine. Such values included market-based democracy as well as the rule of law.

The goals of the seminars were:

  • to support the consolidation of a democratic system in Ukraine by helping to bring entrepreneurial ideas, values, and characteristics to the young generation entering politics
  • to improve understanding of privatization and development of small and medium -sized private enterprises among young political activists
  • to strengthen the entrepreneurial aspect of parties’ agendas by enhancing the business knowledge of young people, members of those parties.
