Applications for the 2018 American Middle Eastern Network for Dialogue at Stanford (AMENDS) are now open! AMENDS is a collaborative student-led initiative interested in the promotion of understanding and respect around the Middle East, and the support of a generation of leaders who are working to ignite concrete social and economic development in the MENA region. The Summit is taking place at Oxford University, from Thursday June 28 -Monday July 2.
AMENDS’ mission is to create a platform for promising youth leaders whose work impacts the Middle East, North Africa and United States to share and grow their initiatives. During the conference, we provide delegates opportunities to develop key skills, network and collaborate with established leaders, experts, and fellow changemakers, and share the story of their initiatives with a wider audience after receiving coaching and editing support.
Delegates are selected based on the impact and the level of their dedication to promoting change in the MENA region and/or in U.S.- MENA relations and the potential for their initiative to have an impact. AMENDS will also heavily consider the past experiences and backgrounds of each delegate that will enable him/her to contribute a unique perspective to the conference, in order to ensure a rich, diverse group of delegates.
