YPO-WPO offers a world of learning

Pick a topic, and YPO is out there, way ahead of the crowd

Every YPO education program is created with one ultimate goal – to provide members with practical information, relevant insights and experiential learning that will enhance their businesses and enrich their lives. YPO members around the world speak of experiences the can have “only in YPO” because YPO education is not a talking head, or the same speech off the lecture circuit. YPO learning is unforgettable, useful, and inspiring.

A Customized Curriculum
Working with a local education officer, all YPO members can create a customized curriculum to tackle the specific issues and questions they face in their various life stages as a young leader. From short and highly focused seminars, to more in-depth conferences, the array of education offerings enhance the skills YPO members need to compete successfully and meet the challenges of a dramatically changing world.

YPO-WPO education takes place wherever members find themselves. Whether in smaller, focused interest groups, geographically based chapters, to global conferences drawing from all over the world, YPOers know their educational event will be challenging, stimulating and well beyond anything they could achieve on their own.

Special alliances dating back in some cases more than 50 years give YPO members unique access to world-class expertise at premier institutions such as the London Business School, Harvard Business School, Stanford Graduate School of Business, Wharton School of Business, the Aspen Institute, and GE.

With no travel required, YPO-WPO’s Global Conference Calls give YPO members immediate access to experts worldwide – to discuss and interpret current issues of the times – from global health threats, and economic forecasts, and even personal issues such as children with learning disabilities and caring for aging parents.

Finding Balance
Perhaps best of all, YPO-WPO members are invited to involve their entire families, discovering the world together through YPO’s award-wining Youth and Family programs. YPO youth have their own programs, including the Junior Leadership University (JLU), a secure youth-only website, and even an internship track at YPO member companies. YPO members strengthen bonds with their families as they learn alongside their children, introducing them to the great religions, geographies and politics different from their own.

Never Stop Learning
Above all, membership in YPO-WPO is a very personal journey in pursuit of knowledge, life experiences and wisdom that inspires better leaders giving back to communities and countries throughout the world.
