Future Heroes Lithuania 2022
We are excited to announce that the Future Heroes accelerator programme has reached its final Baltic state!
Future Heroes, co-funded by the ella fund and the British Council, is a leadership and entrepreneurship programme for 13-17-year-old girls to unlock their potential and create positive change in the world. The globally acclaimed project was launched in Estonia in 2018 and has been successfully running for several years. It was selected as one of the top 3 initiatives to promote entrepreneurship in Europe, became the winner of the World Awards in 2020, and in the same year was ranked among the 16 most influential, innovative projects for young people in Europe (https://futureheroes.ee).
Future Heroes Lithuania
During the 7 workshops taking place over the course of two months, the girls will test their strengths, boost their skills, grow their sisterhood and be inspired by diverse role models. Most importantly, their dreams will be made a reality in teamwork, supported by mentors. The programme is fully taught in English, and fully free of charge.
Sessions are kicked off by inspirational speakers, followed by practical skills workshops and mentoring to drive the team projects forward. Each workshop covers a different set of topics and skills, inviting the most expert speakers and mentors to guide the girls through the process and inspire them to become a Future Hero. The programme provides the opportunity to not only learn about leadership and entrepreneurship from inspiring professionals in the field (from both Lithuania and abroad), but also to start creating their own start-up.
