Next Generation Development Program
As leaders in their respective fields and communities, Committee of 100 members actively mentors and cultivate next-generation leaders. In Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York, Washington D.C., and Beijing, members volunteer their time to provide emerging leaders unique opportunities to learn directly from their paths to success. Participants of regional mentorship programs later convene at C100’s Annual “Common Ground” Conference for an Annual Leadership Summit and meet one-on-one with a larger pool of members. The regional programs and Annual Leadership Summit advanced C100’s mission to develop a robust pipeline of future Asian American leaders and U.S.-China bridge-builders.
In 2005, the Committee of 100 launched the Leadership Scholarship Program (LSP) in partnership with over ten universities in China to help Chinese post-graduates reach their greatest potential through scholarships. Through a competitive selection process, students are awarded for their dedication to social responsibility, academic excellence, and leadership potential. Since its inception, the program has awarded over 200 scholarships. In 2015, C100 plans to launch several new collaborations to significantly grow, leverage and elevate the impact of partnering high-performing nonprofits in the field of next-generation leadership development and US-China bridge-building.
