Thematic Working Groups unite selected alumni of the Emerging Leaders School ELS, working on various interesting initiatives under the supervision of respective field experts, these groups are implementing year-long small-scale projects.

Participation in Thematic Working Groups (WGs) aims to provide active youth with an opportunity to gain deeper knowledge about policies relevant to them, formulate an opinion, and advocate for change. The program will ensure that members of Working Groups are exposed to the environment of the chosen policy field, familiarize themselves with the main actors and their positions, and will be able to further personal and professional networks of their own.

Thematic Working Groups are created under the framework of the project “Promoting Youth Transformational Leaders in Georgia.” The Georgian Institute of Politics implements the project with the financial support of USAID/Georgia.
