Photos From Youth Congress Leadership Opening Session

 The 2011 - 2012 Youth Congress Leadership program got underway with an orientation meeting at the Scherr Forum Theater in the Thousand Oaks Civic Arts Plaza. Javier LaFianza, president and chief executive officer of Hugh O’Brian Youth Leadership, spoke about the qualities of leadership and stressed that the youth of America are “not just the leaders of tomorrow but the leaders of today.” He reminded the students that “leadership requires action, not just talking about it or holding a leadership title” and shared examples of HOBY alumni who have “impacted lives and communities in a very positive way” by following their passion and a commitment to service.
