Leaders of Today Northwest
Reinvigorating and amplifying the voices of all social sectors through youth leadership
We are proud recipients of the 2021 Hershey's Heartwarming Project Action Grant!
Awards Ceremony & Opportunities Showcase
Date: June 19th, 2021
Event schedule will be published on our website and social media in the coming weeks.
Along with recognizing the winners, we want all youth to be set up for success for the summer months and beyond. By combining our Awards Ceremony with an Opportunities Showcase, we ensure that youth are connected with the organizations and resources that they need to thrive. Regardless of if you entered the 2021 Leaders of Today Northwest Competition, join us for internship, volunteering, and networking opportunities.
Leaders of Today focuses on tackling the issue of youth disengagement with the community. Youth will become proactive leaders only when they are allowed to focus on issues that they are passionate about. When given resources and freedom to tackle the community’s issues by themselves, youth will feel a sense of belonging and motivation to better the society they are a part of.
Since 2018, we've focused on a specific sector of society each year and held events to reintroduce them to our community. In 2019, we focused on intergenerational relationships and collaborated with senior centers in our community. In 2020, we organized a Night Market Opportunities Fair to link youth with local businesses and organizations. In 2021, we look forward to continuing our mission: reinvigorating and amplifying the voices of all social sectors through youth leadership.
