Caux Peace and Leadership Program

The first batch of Caux summer interns welcome their new friends into the House and bid adieu in their last get together on the Caux terrace on Wednesday afternoon

Building a dynamic network of young changemakers

The integrated Caux Peace and Leadership Programme is divided into three groups depending on familiarity with Initiatives of Change (IofC) and experience. All groups will include training, attendance in conferences and time for both practical application of their training in one of the departments involved in the running of the Caux Forum and for personal reflection. The training caters to new and returning participants; it is guided by their own needs and allows both individual choice and progression.

The Caux Interns Leadership Program is for people who care about personal and global change; and who have the courage to challenge themselves to make a difference. This summer the faculty added a new component to the program, which drew in a wider network of people from the global fellowship who have years of experience with IofC. Each intern was connected with someone who was not in Caux this year.

Caux Interns

Nearly every year since 1946, over 1300 participants from all over the world gather in Caux, Switzerland, attending one of the Initiatives of Change (IofC) international conferences held during the summer. A unique characteristic of these conferences is the community life. Participants are invited to join communities of between 12 and 20 people where general topics are discussed in an atmosphere of trust and mutual respect.

At Caux, on the other side of the world, I found a place where I knew I was meant to be. Overlooking a spectacular view, I was able to find out who I was and make connections with inspiring people from all over the world. Though I was a little nervous, I was sure from day one that the interns program was going to be an enlightening experience. Now I can say without a doubt that I was not wrong about it. The workshops, my departmental work in reception and my conference participation taught me many skills, and I was able to make connections I would never have been able to make at any other internship.
