“KECTIL” is an acronym that refers to the Knowles Educational and Charitable Trust for International Leadership.
The Kectil Program is based of the following principals.
The Program works to achieve these goals in three parts: a one-year Web-based Program, the Developing Youth Leadership Conference in Atlanta, United States, and the Alumni Network.
Due to logistics and cost, more applicants can be accepted for the Web-based Program than the Developing Youth Leadership Conference in Atlanta. If an applicant is accepted for the Web-based Program but not the Developing Youth Leadership Conference, the applicant can apply the next year to attend the Conference. All applicants accepted for either (i) the Web-based Program or (ii) the Web-based Program and the Leadership Conference are encouraged to join and actively participate in the Alumni Network at the end of the Program.
