The young generation is expected to be able to compete and become quality leaders, as well as be proactive in various social activities and organizations.

“Not everyone can become a leader, because being a leader requires process; one needs to be prepared, to practice, and gain experience. This is a very good program to learn and gain experience to be a future leader,” he continued.

The IYL program is organized through a series of activities, such as the stages of the selection process for participants from various regions in Indonesia. Selected participants were given briefing and deepening with material in the form of leadership, public speaking and financial management classes, to provision the participants prior to their entering the community to make a real contribution towards the development of tourism villages and improvement of the surrounding community’s economy.

Theresia Rustandi, Intiland’s Corporate Secretary and Head of CSR, explained that IYL is a national-scale sustainable CSR initiative program from Intiland that is part of the Intiland Youth Panel Program. Collaborating with the I AM Community youth community, the Ministry of Maritime Affairs and Fisheries, and the Chamber of Commerce of West Nusa Tenggara, this program aims to prepare young people to become future leaders across various industries.

She believed that the IYL program served as a crucible for the younger generation, in which they are forged to practice, explore, and develop their potential in the fields of leadership, problem solving, analytical thinking, and public speaking. This program gives them substantial experience to be the future leaders of Indonesia, on their way towards making real contribution to the development of tourism villages.

“I express my gratitude and extraordinary appreciation to the participants who have given their commitment, energy, time, and money to join this program. This is a truly positive investment for self-development efforts and for society at large,” said Theresia further.

The implementation of the IYL program focused the programs and activities on educational activities, skills, personal development, and motivation regarding the property industry and investment. This main agenda involved a masterclass session, community services, campaign challenge, and awarding night.

The masterclass session featured speakers and representatives of the Ministry of Maritime Affairs and Fisheries (KKP) and the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of West Nusa Tenggara Province. The participants attended presentations given by the speakers, covering various important and strategic factors that shape the regional economic development, while also discussing the role of business actors in driving the economy, including the challenges faced as well as opportunities and the role of young people in it.

During the session, Theresia Susanti, a representative of the KKP, specifically explained the key factors in economic recovery measures, namely through marine tourism village initiatives and local community empowerment. This session clearly reviews strategies, opportunities, and risks in the marine industry as well as tips and tricks in developing sustainable marine tourism by considering social and environmental aspects.

In the community services and campaign challenge sessions, all participants had the opportunity to contribute directly to the community by conducting guidance, education, and mentoring activities for Tasola Beach Village residents. Participants shared their experiences on smart tips for financial management and the utilization of social media as a medium for promoting the products of the Tasola Beach Village community, in order to boost the income of the residents.

Participants also obtained the opportunity to explore the touristic areas in Lombok, such as the traditional village of Sukarara, Central Lombok Regency. Participants can learn firsthand the process of making Lombok woven cloth, as well as wear Lambung and Pegon traditional clothings, which are native to the Sasak Tribe.

Participants also visited Sasak Sade Traditional Village, Central Lombok, one of the hamlets housing the original inhabitants of the island of Lombok: the Sasak Tribe. They learned about the rich culture and characteristic customs of the Sasak Tribe, and saw firsthand the Sasak traditional houses that remain preserved to this day.

Aside from learning about the value of local culture, participants explored various leading natural tourist destinations. On top of visiting the Mandalika Special Economic Zone (SEZ), the participants also explored the beauty of Tanjung Aan and Bukit Merese beaches, located in Central Lombok. Furthermore, they paid a visit to a workshop and a showroom for pearls, the main commodity typical of Lombok often marketed as souvenirs.

The IYL program implementation was well received by the participants. Apart from appreciating the program initiative, they were also active in every activity.

“This is an extraordinary program and activity. I get new friends, new experiences, and can improve my skills and soft skills,” said Adella Miranda Abas, one of the participants from GAG Island, Raja Ampat Regency, West Papua Province. Adella is currently working as a professional employee at a mining company in West Papua.

A similar opinion was conveyed by Muhammad Khalifah, a participant from Jakarta who said he was happy to get to know and establish relationships with other participants from all over Indonesia. He was able to exchange ideas and learn new things, given that Indonesia is a vast archipelago, with each region being home to a host of unique characteristics.

“I am happy that we can unite these differences and can learn new things, starting from leadership, understanding the mindset of other colleagues’, and learning to interact and communicate well with local residents,” he continued.

Theresia Rustandi hoped that this program could become a pillar for the younger generation to explore post-disaster and pandemic economic recovery programs for the local community together. This program is expected to strengthen public awareness about the potential of Tasola Beach Village as well as provide basic leadership training and sharing for the local young generation.

“We are happy to see the enthusiasm of young people who are extraordinarily creative, full of fresh ideas and are strongly passionate about sharing experiences with each other, and furthermore, they also have a strong commitment to learning and making a real contribution to the society,” said Theresia further.
