The European Leadership Programme (ELP) is one of the ways JESC is committed to journeying with the youth and guiding leadership. The aim of the ELP is to form future leaders practically and spiritually by helping ELP fellows learn about the European institutions through direct contact with politicians and decision-makers while they study leadership issues and earn ECTS credits. In addition, this Brussels immersion programme will bring future leaders in touch with marginalized people and those in need. Both the coaching programme and the experience of a fellowship community will give the participants space for reflection and personal growth.
JESC also organises workshops to train leadership beyond Brussels, such as Faith & Politics Workshop that took place in 2018 in Venice, organised by Edmond Grace, JESC Secretary for Ecology, among other Jesuit networks.
Besides, JESC Director Peter Rožič SJ offers silent spiritual retreats based on Scripture and the Constitutions of the Society of Jesus to managers and CEOs. He is Social Apostolate Coordinator for Europe and Near East and has participated in events such as the International Alumni Congress of priests and seminarians in Brussels.
