Growing Numbers For Leadership Initiatives

Dear Respective Leadership Initiatives Donors and Staff,

After a successful six sessions of summer programs, Leadership Initiatives has seen many new students thrive and use their innovation to benefit others. The students engaged in a multitude of fields such as medical, business, and legal to use their skills to anlayze the different sets of problems that they faced. Many students have changed and grown throughout this process. Below, you can read about a students experience with Leadership Initiatives:

"During the summer before my sophomore year of highschool, I was invited to attend a conference at the University of California, Los Angeles called the Global Young Innovators Initiative, which was my first real introduction to Leadership Initiatives. When I decided to go to this conference, I did not know how much the organization would affect my life. At the conference, I discovered that I would be partnered with a business owner in Nigeria and was tasked to solve three different problems that my assigned irrigation farming business was struggling with. My team and I worked throughout the week and managed to create a presentation from our ideas on how to solve their problems. Following the week of the conference, I was invited to join the International Business Internship Program. I am able to work with the same irrigation farmer to expand and better his business. Through this program and through the Leadership Initiatives Internship Program, I have learned how amazing it is to be able to help someone you have never met before that lives on the opposite side of the world. Throughout my work with the International Business Internship Program, I have set up many fundraisers to help those in Nigeria. Leadership Initiatives has given me the opportunity to grow as a leader and pursue my passion in international development. I am excited for the years to come with this organization."

Thank you to everyone that continuely supports us in our journey to change lives - both the students and the business owners. We appreciate your generosity in helping us work towards a better future for the lives of the students and our Nigerian business partners. 

Best,

Leadership Initiatives Staff
