PILP Alumni Community PILP Alumni Community

Generation 1 (G1) graduated from the Pacific Islands Leadership Program (PILP) in 2013.  Today, the PILP alumni network has grown into a vibrant community of action, consisting of 157 leaders across 15 countries who stand committed to the future prosperity of the Pacific region.  PILP is designed to be a platform for personal and professional advancement.  Through their achievements and success, we are witnessing the rise of the PILP alumni community, individually and collectively, throughout all sectors and walks of life in local communities, regional architecture and on the global stage. 

As an alumni community, our goals in PILP are to stay meaningfully connected, embrace lifelong learning, enhance individual leadership capacity, share solutions, increase impact and to support each other through life’s challenges and opportunities.
