The Learning Exchange Foundation is organizing its first leadership training workshop with 40 young women between age 16 and 24 in December 2012. The workshop will last 5 days and the training will provided by leading2change and Phunseum Gyalwang Bhutan. This training is focusing on young women because these women generally have less work opportunities than young men. The training will encompass young leadership practice, social entrepreneurship and self awareness. This training is the preparation for the community hospitality college.

More than half the population is younger than age 24, and an acute challenge Bhutan faces today is unemployment among the youth. Youth unemployment is  high for young women as for young men, but girls face a greater disadvantage than boys.
