Young Leaders Institute missions itself to empower youth towards social entrepreneurship and social innovation, through various platforms of leadership training. The Institute was founded on the vision that “we believe in the power of young leaders rising to make a difference in the world”. The training encompasses two main features:
- a 12-hour comprehensive, hands-on leadership training seminar
- inclusion into the Young Leaders Network, which is an ongoing post-training network that gives students unlimited access to a variety of academic and professional resources (mentorships, internships, webinars, conferences, etc.)
YLI offers three different programs exclusively tailored to meet the needs of three distinct groups of students: middle school, high school and college aged students.
