MVYLI’s Youth Leadership Summit for Sustainable Development inspires, educates and empowers young people (ages 15-18) to take initiative in their lives and on their island.  In this weeklong intensive leadership training youth delegates envision their personal, professional, island and planetary goals.  The Summit begins with a Sustainable Vineyard Tour to learn first-hand about blue projects on the Island.  They meet in professional work groups with college youth and begin developing 5-year plans for their lives.  They also identify and develop action plans for sustainability projects to help their Island.  Our faculty: The Institute’s Train-the-Trainer Youth Empowerment Model features youth graduates from previous Summits.  They are especially invested in passing along Dr. King’s legacy of “Each one, teach one” – that creates a powerful multiplier effect for future generations.
