The McCain Global Leaders Program fosters character-driven leaders from around the world who exemplify Senator John McCain’s tradition of serving a cause greater than oneself.
Each cohort will consist of 25 different leaders from around the world who are working “in the arena” to advance democracy, human rights, and freedom over a 10-month fellowship and experiential learning program. The program is intended to develop each leader’s personal and professional leadership journey and impact by providing training, tools, and access to highly relevant regional and worldwide networks, with the purpose of preparing today’s leaders for tomorrow’s issues.
