As in previous years, Yalta European Strategy (YES), in cooperation with the Victor Pinchuk Foundation, continues to involve Ukrainian young leaders in the YES Annual Meeting.
YES selects 100 Ukrainian students and young professionals to participate in the Young Leaders Panel. This gives them access to the leading international and Ukrainian politicians, businessmen and experts gathered at the YES meeting.
Participants are selected based on their academic excellence, leadership potential and their work as community leaders and activists. They include scholarship holders and alumni of the Victor Pinchuk Foundation's educational programs "Zavtra.UA" and "WorldWideStudies".
The project is in line with YES' mission to integrate Ukraine with Europe and the world, and with the mission the Victor Pinchuk Foundation has followed for a decade: to empower a young generation to become responsible leaders and change-makers in Ukraine.
Over the past years, over 400 of Ukraine’s best students and young professionals participated in the annual Young Leaders Panel at the YES meetings.
