SAN DIEGO, CA – Youths from throughout Maui County attended the Global Youth Leadership Summit last week, July 19-25.

This prestigious international conference is hosted by the Anthony Robbins Foundation and is held at the 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.”

Conference attendees have the opportunity to meet and collaborate with other youths in a five-day program that provides participants ages 14-17 with an environment designed to boost them into leadership roles that will change their lives and communities.

The 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 the Global Youth Leadership Summit, participants are encouraged to identify personal goals and make a commitment to community service.

Members of HLC include students ages 13-17 from schools throughout Maui County, including Maui Preparatory Academy, Lahainaluna High School, Kamehameha Schools Maui, Seabury Hall, Kihei Charter School and Akaula School (Molokai).

HLC 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 at Maui Preparatory Academy, to support and encourage students from throughout Maui to reach their highest potential and dream a “bigger dream.”
