Elos New Leaders is a 5 day intensive program conceptualized and conceived to provoke in leaders the development of competencies necessary for action in complex environments. Our program is distinguished by its quality of learning through action, and allows participants to interact with youth from the Guerreiros Sem Armas program and people from the local communities.
Learning through action takes the participants through the Elos Philosophy, recognized by national and international governments, companies and organizations for its pragmatism and power to bring awareness to leaders, all in service of the development of a culture of abundance and collaboration that stimulates positive change.
Guerreiros Sem Armas is an international youth program developed by Instituto Elos that offers hands-on learning in leadership and social entrepreneurship. The first edition of the program took place in 1999, and since 2018 the program has taken place annually. The program capacitates around 60 youth per year, mobilizing for the construction of at least three spaces in different communities and supporting the gestation of projects and developing local businesses.
