For those of you who don’t know, the Himalayan Youth Leadership Summit (HYLS) was held for the first time in the summer of 2011. The support for the event was enormous – we almost ran out of space for all of the workshops and activities organized by our co-hosts and sponsors. Now, we want to build on this success.
As our goal for the 2012 HYLS is to include youth at ALL levels and in every stage of planning, this year’s summit will be spearheaded by a Youth Committee. Alongside the support provided by partner organizations, youth of the Himalayan communities will be put on the forefront of organizing an event that is by the youth, of the youth and for the youth.
We would like to encourage all young people from the Himalayan communities (Bhutanese, Nepali, and Tibetan) to participate and play their part in writing the next chapter of HYLS. If you are (OR KNOW SOMEONE WHO IS) an interested/interesting/talented individual, please request the application, fill it out and email it to us. To request a Youth Committee application, please email Jain Thapa at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The deadline for the application period is April 20, 2012.
