The Salam Project for Cultural Communication will kick off the fourth session of the Young Leaders Program on Sunday, with 60 young men and women taking part.

The program seeks to improve participants’ cognitive abilities and skills, enabling them to engage in effective and influential cultural dialogue with other cultures, participate in international forums, and promote the Kingdom’s favorable image.

Fahd bin Sultan Al-Sultan, the project’s executive director, said the 60 participants would be trained for three months using an integrated system of training workshops and tools to improve their knowledge and abilities in effective cultural communication.

The program comprises training seminars and panel discussions with the goal of equipping participants with scientific information on the Kingdom’s most pressing concerns and challenges.

The curriculum will involve field visits to meet specialists, hear about the Kingdom’s cultural endeavors and accomplishments, and draw on their experiences.

Participants will get an understanding of human diversity among persons of various cultural origins. The curriculum will include activities and projects that will put the participants’ newfound knowledge and abilities to work in the service of their future international contributions.

More than 1,200 people applied for the program, but only 60 were chosen based on their eligibility. Participants have the ability, experience, and competency to connect with people from different cultures; they are fluent in international languages, have previously participated in international events, and have the expertise to support the program’s strategy and objectives.

Al-Sultan emphasized the necessity of equipping youth with the skills they need to present a favorable image of the Kingdom around the world.

In the last three sessions, up to 180 students have graduated from the program. Graduates have presented more than 30 seminars at more than 110 international conferences conducted in more than 32 countries.
