National Training Programs for Young Politicians
  • Young Political Leaders Schools
The Foundation for Pluralism’s main activity is the training of young political leaders. FfP was the first and so far only nongovernmental organization in Romania that has systematically and impartially organized seminars and debates for young political leaders, focused on promoting the dialog between representatives of political parliamentary and non-parliamentary parties. From 1994 to 2006, FfP has organized nine editions of the School for Young Political Leaders. Through these programs the young politicians gained a better knowledge and understanding of political doctrines, had the opportunity of free and open dialog and the possibility of acquiring new abilities, necessary for an efficient political action. From the over 1200 participants, many have become members of the Government (ministers, state secretaries, cabinet chiefs, presidents and vice-presidents for governmental organizations), members of Parliament (senators and deputies), parliamentary experts, territorial cabinet chiefs, public clerks or were elected in the local public administration structures (mayors, vice-mayors, local counselors).
