The 2012 World Leadership Conference was an action packed week with a range of leadership-building activities including Powered by Service. This activity, central to our mission, provided UNL youth the paramount leadership experience– the opportunity to train over 1,200 of their peers in the 4 pillars of talent, education, career and service.
Additionally, youth leaders interfaced with exemplary role models that furthered their ability to identify their own talents, stretch their education base, build career opportunities, and learn how to turn their passion for service into action. New Look youth truly took over Atlanta when they got to partake in ‘CEO For a Day’ at some of the world’s most prestigious organizations and Fortune 500 companies.
