Mercy Corps has worked with the All-China Youth Federation (ACYF) to develop the Social Innovator Leadership Program. The course exposes an annual delegation to new ideas for innovatively addressing social issues, working to build a new cadre of risk-taking leaders that have skills and knowledge to work collaboratively with communities.

These pictures illustrate some of the work, discussions and meetings for the most recent ACYF delegation in June 2010.
