Youth Leadership Initiative
*Class of 2019 Profiles
This was a great initiative. We learned a lot about ourselves, others and the world in general. We got to meet incredible speakers with different backgrounds, very interesting stories and experiences to share.
The highlight of the program was being able to learn about the culture and traditions of foreign students, being taught by world class professors and speakers and sleeping in real college dorms!
I really appreciated the idea that everyone could have a voice. The talented teachers and world leaders contributed to an intense but enriching program.
This is a great program to improve your communication skills and leadership skills.
It was really interesting to meet people from all around the world. We had fun creating a project we were all passionate about.
