Program 1

Youth Leadership Summit for Sustainable Development

The Institute's 2011 Youth Leadership Summit for Sustainable Development will be held on the island of Martha's Vineyard in June.  During this week-long intensive training program, fifty youth delegates ages 14-22 will envision their personal, professional, community and planetary goals and develop action plans to implement sustainable development projects. We will have youth delegates from the islands of Hawaii, Nantucket, Whidbey Island, Vieques, Puerto Rico, and Virgin Gorda, BVI.  We begin with a Sustainable Vineyard Tour of green projects, programs and organizations. As our Leave-A-Legacy Project, youth delegates produce a video on their dreams for their lives, their island the world. During the year, they develop Sustainability-in-Action projects with other youth and their communities. Youth are nominated by local non-profit organizations, schools and community leaders. The Institute's faculty includes those featured in the book, Stone Soup for the World: Life-Changing Stories of Everyday Heroes as well as seasoned youth leaders from the Institute's previous youth leadership initiatives. The Institute convened six Youth Leadership Summits in two countries. In 2008, youth leaders developed their vision for 2020 Report for Sustainable Development which was presented at the APEC Youth Summit  to inspire young people from 21 countries to share their visions for their future with their nation's leaders. www.vyli.com

Global Technology Initiative

The Institute's Global Technology Initiative is dedicated to Walter Cronkite.  We will take our books and educational curricula along with our training programs from our various initiatives to create an Online Learning Resource Center. People will be able to read our stories, watch videos of our heroes and share their own stories about how they are engaging people in their communities to help build a more sustainable world. Using social media tools, we will connect, inspire and educate young people from our Youth Leadership Summits with other young people around the world to collaborate online and in their communities. By collaborating with the Institute's faculty from our books, we will build partnership projects and create online communities-in-action with young people around the world.

Martha's Vineyard Youth Leadership Initiative

The Martha's Vineyard Youth Leadership Initiative is training young people to become leaders of the 21st century.  MVYLI's year-round program builds on the annual Youth Leadership Summit and provides young people with training, skills and leadership development opportunities. We conduct weekly workshops and organize monthly projects with partnering organizations in the community including the Martha's Vineyard Commission, Martha's Vineyard Chamber of Commerce, Rotary Club of Martha's Vineyard, Island Grown Schools, The Farm Institute as well as the schools and local businesses. We have created Dr. King Cultural Health Project, Job Shadow Day and Walter Cronkite Annual Awards Ceremony. MVYLI youth serve as representatives to the Cape & Islands Youth Congress and the Governor's Youth Council.  They are invited to speak at conferences to share their vision for their life, their island and the world.  In partnership with the Martha's Vineyard Community Television, young people produce videos on our projects and feature them on our YouTube channel and on MVTV. Our MVYLI Business intern assists with implementing our development plan and assists with our on-island sponsor drive for the Youth Leadership Summit.

STATEMENT FROM THE Principal Officer
