Loudoun International Youth Leadership Summit

LIYLS 2015 Logo

 

 The 5th Annual Loudoun International Youth Leadership Summit will be held April 3rd to April 12th, 2016 and is expanding to include seven Loudoun County high schools (Dominion, Park View, Potomac Falls, Freedom, Rock Ridge, Broad Run, and Woodgrove).  We anticipate participation from approximately 16 international delegations, which are likely to include students delegates from:  Australia, China, Estonia, France, Germany, Italy, Lebanon, Mexico, Singapore, South Africa, and South Korea.

Students in the Global Ambassadors clubs at the various Loudoun County high schools will begin planning the event in September 2016 and look forward to hosting their peers from around the world.

Founded in 2012, the summit seeks to bring together young people from around the globe for an opportunity to share perspectives and consider ways that they can take action on issues of global significance.  Students do this through a variety of activities which actively engage a wide variety of LCPS students with the international delegates, including structured discussions, classroom activities, field trips, and development of an action plan to implement after the summit.
