The Asia Leadership Trek is a program run by the Center for Asia Leadership Initiatives, established in 2014 in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The program addresses cutting-edge political, economic, educational, and societal issues through engagement with government and business leaders, educational figures, entrepreneurs, and students throughout Asia. It also seeks to contribute to many different communities in Asia through public service, incorporating mentorship, conferences, discussions of best practices, and capacity building workshops, based on the latest research and ideas taught at Harvard, MIT, Stanford, and other universities represented on the Treks. Ultimately, the program embodies the belief that the exchange of knowledge is the key to progress. While sharing insights that they have gleaned at some of the finest educational establishments in the world, the Trekkers in turn tap into the immense pool of energy and ideas available in Asia. Learning, teaching, and public service thus combined for an invaluable and unforgettable experience.
