2022.
TO BE ANNOUNCED SOON.

2021.
YOUTH IDENTITY THEME.

In the midst of the Coronavirus pandemic, we are required to distance from one another. For many youth, this was and continues to be a struggle in terms of mental health as they are forced to experience life from the sidelines. As 2021 progresses, youth not only remain isolated but also experience the unfolding of disheartening events. More than ever, we need youth voices from all backgrounds to work with influential people like yourself to enact change at a higher level. We have had almost a full year to reflect on our role as a youth in our community and we are ready to take action.

2020.
CommUnity Theme.

To assist the youth to better understand their own community and the opportunities it offers, we planned a Night Market Opportunities Fair to link youth with local businesses and organizations.

2019.
Intergeneration theme.

The older demographic is one that youth have almost no connection with. In order to bridge this gap, we focused on fostering intergenerational relationships by collaborating with senior centers in our community.

2018.
Leaders Of Today Is Born!

From elementary school, students have learned the importance of a strong community, but have rarely learned how to be involved. Therefore, Leaders of Today strives to provide students with the opportunity to be hands-on in solving issues. The problems in the community will continue to grow if the current youth remains uncomfortable making the changes they want to see.
