World Youth Service & Enterprise

WYSE is an Educational Charity associated with the United Nations, incorporating the guiding principles of the UN Charter and of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. WYSE International is based in London and has 8 national branches overseas initiated by past participants who want to expand the goodwill of WYSE.

WYSE Leadership programs take the form of two-week intensive leadership programs conducted by a team of international educators. Participants learn that to effectively lead others, they must first know and lead themselves in particular, to recognize and explore their inner world and nurture hidden potential. Emphasis is given to the development of body, mind, emotions and spirit and their integration and application. The focus is personal, but always within the context of global vision, evoking a sense of personal and social responsibility leading to action. WYSE emphasizes inclusiveness, appreciation, understanding and love. One of the disciplines used is Psychosynthesis, a concept of human development, founded by the Italian psychiatrist, Roberto Assagioli. Psychosynthesis techniques provide opportunities for participants to develop self-knowledge, clarify their purpose, recognize their true and creative potential and improve their relationships.

The curriculum includes individual and group experiences in:

  • Leadership
  • Personal Development
  • Interpersonal and communication Skills
  • Cooperation and Team Building
  • Group Facilitation Skills
  • Cultural Exchange Presentations
  • Meditation
  • Art
  • Physical activities
  • Global and Environmental Issues
  • United Nations and Human Rights
  • Men’s and Women’s Groups
  • Guest Speakers

Building a better world is not just a dream for WYSE, rather a reality. Participants return to their countries with a clearer sense of who they are and how they can effectively apply what they have learned. Many of them have developed projects to help people in their own countries.
