@2016 Young Leaders Institute


Young Leaders Institute is a unique youth leadership platform and network connector designed to empower and equip young people with extraordinary leadership skills to boost their confidence and help put them on a trajectory toward social entrepreneurship and social innovation.  We provide an open, safe environment for students to develop remarkable interpersonal skills and keen critical thinking skills as they focus on their strengths and redirect their talents toward finding their passion, their purpose and their true, best self.  Through introspective, comprehensive trainings and mind-shifting exercises, students are enlightened by their 'elevated consciousness' and walk away with a multitude of tools that will enable them to unleash their greatest potential, as they are inspired to take on new leadership roles.  Students will rise with a new global outlook as they are empowered to become the social innovators and agents of change that will transform their communities and the world around them.

As we work toward building a more just and inclusive society, Young Leaders Institute is unequivocally committed to ensuring that all youth, including those who live in urban, under-served areas, have an opportunity to be trained and receive equal opportunity and access to the same resources as their affluent contemporaries.  Young Leaders Institute provides a healthy, dynamic network for students to stay connected, long after, as they continue to engage with the trainers, mentors and other like-minded social innovators to become the leaders they are capable of being TODAY!


We believe in the power of young leaders, who are not limited by imagination or self expression, rising to make the world a better place



To motivate, inspire and empower young people to become social innovators and agents of change.



Young Leaders Institute is all about active leadership- being in the present- and acknowledging the moment of NOW!  The journey is full of thought-provoking discussions, skill and attitude development, collaboration and team gatherings.
