Qendra Qiriazi for Leadership Training

Inter action

Our Vision

Improving the world one leader at a time

Our Mission

Leadership training & development programs


​The Leadership Club aims to help students develop strong servant leadership traits through a combination of training events (seminars, workshops, and lectures) and application (community service projects). Students have the opportunity to develop meaningful relationships with like-minded peers and participate in content-rich extracurricular activities.

The center focuses on personal and professional development and is constantly evolving to expand its role in strengthening students with a desire to grow as servant leaders. Students ages 15-25 who attend high school or university in Kosovo are the primary individuals educated through the programs of the Qiriazi Center.

The Qiriazi Center is a leadership training organization launched to raise up servant leaders for Kosovo. The center works to shape marketplace, academic, and social leaders.

The Summer Leadership Program is an essential part of the work and credibility that the Qiriazi Center has built over the years. Many students who have participated in the program are now involved in improving their communities as a result of learning about and being challenged to become today's servant leaders.

The week-long program is hosted "retreat style" in the Rugova Mountains that surround Peja, Kosova. Volunteers from the USA and other parts of the world help to staff the program as experienced lecturers and small-group trainers. Training topics include: Vision and Mission Planning; Listening and Communication Skills; Essential Servant Leader Character Traits; Developing a Spirit of Excellence; Conflict Resolution; Understanding Personality Types; Management and Strategic Planning.
