Investments in the leadership potential of young people within a community strengthen the management and long-term effectiveness of organizations involved in local development. Instituto Mora (IM) offers a training program to develop a new generation of leaders by preparing young Mexicans between the ages of 22 and 29 for leadership positions in community foundations. At the IAF, we support community-led solutions to unlock private, public and community resources for grassroots development in Mexico. IM’s activities strengthen grassroots organizations through education and training and build peer-to-peer learning and action networks.
This grant is part of our broader initiative to encourage innovative and entrepreneurial thinking to increase funding sources for sustainable community-led development.
