Are you a Portland-area high school student who is interested in:
Gaining a global perspective? Developing leadership & teamwork skills? Building intercultural connections? Taking action on critical issues?
Young Leaders in Action is a youth-led program that brings together high school students from across the Portland metro area to develop the skills to become engaged, resourceful and activated youth leaders in Oregon. Participants meet monthly, from October-May, to take part in workshops on global issues, intercultural activities, leadership and networking trainings, and social action projects.
The Young Leaders in Action program engages a diverse group of students from high schools across the Portland metro area in cultivating leadership skills to become local leaders poised to take action on global issues. Built on the ethos that critical thinking, teamwork and empathy are key elements to leadership development, the Young Leaders in Action program empowers youth leaders to become agents of change at home and abroad.
