Learning Methodology

The Future Leaders Program is implemented in universities by the students themselves who receive guidelines, materials and access to the Do Well Do Good platform. Students cannot join individually. They need to create a team of 20-40 students from the same university to run the program.

Learning by collaboration

Students are grouped into smaller teams according to the expertise networks and meet weekly to discuss, debate and give feedback.

Learning by doing

Students spend more than 60% of their time on projects so they can sharpen their skills through practice.

Learning by teaching

As senior members students mentor, coach and help recruit the next team. This is the best way to ensure concept and skills have been fully acquired and demonstrated.


Students cannot participate in our program individually. They must be a part of a team (between 20-40 members). This ensures a dynamic learning environment where students can collaborate, support one another, and collectively grow throughout the 22 weeks. A university cannot have more than one Future Leaders Program chapter.
