About Us

We are Global Shapers

Global Shapers are highly motivated individuals who have a great potential for future leadership roles in society. They are selected on the basis of their achievements, leadership potential and commitment to make a difference. Through the Global Shapers Community, Shapers are provided with opportunities to connect with the worldwide network of Global Shapers, to network with other World Economic Forum communities and to represent the voice of the youth at the World Economic Forum events. Shapers are united by a common desire to channel the members’ tremendous energy and enthusiasm into building a more peaceful and inclusive world.

Mentoring at Ladela school brought me opportunities to help my mentees overcome their career worries and fears. Despite their naiveness, they also learnt from their innocence and passion to be an ambassador in the prospective chosen field of profession.
