The curriculum also includes training in presentation, research, debate, and conflict resolution.
The ‘Ambassador’s Training’ program of the IMC Weekend School includes several weekends of seminars and workshops to prepare participants to become ambassadors to the Dutch public for the Weekend School, and to be a force multiplier for the program within their respective communities. It includes attention to presentation skills, media training, and networking for the alumni of the Weekend School, aged 16-21.
