Paragon is a leadership development program that identifies and connects exceptional youth from across the globe, all of whom have strong leadership potential and the drive to create a brighter and more prosperous future for all.
Talent is universal, but access to opportunity is not. Paragon aims to develop a powerful network of young leaders who will use their passion, brilliance and collaborative spirit to better society and create a more prosperous future.
Over a 3-week all-expense-paid residential program in Turkey in Mid-2021 (dates to be confirmed due to COVID), 40 of the world’s most passionate, committed and ambitious young thinkers and doers will learn from each other and various leaders in one of the world’s most historically significant locations. Paragon Fellows – all 15-17 year old – will learn how to think about the world’s most pressing solutions from multiple perspectives. Our hope is that this once-in-a-lifetime shared experience will unite them in working together to create sustainable solutions for a better future.
