Harvard-Westlake's World Youth Leadership Institute Helps Students Think Globally
This week, 23 students from China and 10 students from the United States are on the Harvard-Westlake Upper School campus for the World Youth Leadership Institute.
The mission of the Institute is to engage students in effective models of leadership in a globally diverse context. The program provides a hands-on learning experience to help students address global issues in an international setting and begin to develop a 21st century partnership. This program brings together both day students and boarding students.
Next week, the students in the World Youth Leadership Institute will join students from Europe and South Africa for the World Leading Schools Association (WLSA) Student Conference, which will also be held at Harvard-Westlake. This event will bring together students from WLSA associate schools from across the world and provide them with opportunities to present their work in a conference context, engage in cross-cultural exchange, and participate in cultural activities in the Los Angeles area.
