Molokai Youth to Attend Global Leadership Summit
Youths from throughout Maui County had the privilege of attending the Global Youth Leadership Summit July 19-25. This prestigious international conference is hosted by the Anthony Robbins Foundation and is held at University of California San Diego campus. The group is part of the Hawaii Leaders Core (HLC) whose mission is to “empower youth for a brighter tomorrow.”
Two students from Molokai were among the 38 youth to attend the summit. They were Royden Abafo from Aka`ula School and Patience Nakihei from Molokai High School.
HLC members traveling to the Leadership Conference will have the opportunity to meet and collaborate with other youths in a five-day program that provides participants ages 14 to 17 with an environment designed to boost them into leadership roles that will change their lives and communities.
Global Youth Leadership Summit’s format includes small group discussions, hands-on service learning experiences, leadership simulation games and exercises designed to enable summit participants to identify their own particular leadership strengths. Dynamic keynote speakers from around the world present on topics from leadership styles to contribution. At the conclusion of Global Youth Leadership Summit, participants are encouraged to identify personal goals and make a commitment to community service.
The HLC community is a nonprofit community and leadership organization that meets regularly to give youth the opportunities and resources they need to discover and pursue their passions without limitations. Hawaii Leaders core was formed in 2013 by Alexander D. Muto, high school student a Maui Preparatory Academy, to support and encourage youth from throughout the island of Maui to reach their highest potential and dream a “bigger dream.”
