YGLS Mission Statement
YGLS believes that students are not leaders waiting to be developed but current leaders in search of refinement and guidance. Customized leadership programs using a transformative process to suit the different leadership models, YGLS participants learn real life principles to use in their daily lives.
How can YGLS help YOU?
YGLS is an annual event for dedicated and ambitious students who are looking to develop their minds, transform lives and inspire others.
Students are given the opportunity to learn essential life teachings in small, collaborative workshops from professionals who share their experiences by enhancing their leadership skills, finding the confidence to speak their voice, standing out from the crowd, and so much more!
Students will hear stories of success from various guest speakers. Workshops include entrepreneurship to mentorship and how to secure necessary funds to start an NGO. In addition, some of the speakers will discuss their work with refugees in quality education programs. They are eager to share their expertise!
YGLS is the perfect setting to experience personal growth, revelation, and discovery, as students are encouraged to make the connection between leadership and fellowship. YGLS seeks to expose and maximize everyone’s inner potential and take their skills to the next level.
