QAIS Hosts the Youth Leadership Summit | QAIS举办了青年领导力峰会

In 2014 the vision for youngleaders.world was born and five months later 1500 students came together in Edmonton, Canada to discover a secret, a hidden power within. That our lives could hold more. What started as a dream of three founders is now becoming a movement of 100.000 youth and will reach 13 countries by April 2018.

People around the world are getting excited about this powerful idea of leadership that when we change ourselves, the world changes around us and it brings us a step closer to collective good.

This year QAIS had the honor of hosting the Youth Leadership Summit on its current World Tour at our very own Baishan Campus. The summit will have passed through 13 countries by April 2018 and our school was one of those chosen to participate in this unique event.

All secondary students gathered for a day full of high energy and positive vibes. Through motivational and inspirational talks mixed with hands on activities, live music, and reflection time, the students learned how to be leaders for change within themselves, locally and globally.

Real life examples of ordinary people changing their whole community, country or even the world showed all of us that change and improving the collective good can start everywhere and be sparked by anyone.


Youngleaders.world诞生于2014年加拿大埃德蒙顿,当5个月后1500学生加入了这个活动时,组织者感到他们发现了一个秘密和一股隐藏在其中的巨大力量:原来我们的生命可以承载更多。于是,一个始于三位创始人的梦想,发展到截止2018年4月,超过10万名来自13个国家的青年人参与的活动。

领导力的强大精神鼓舞了世界各地的参与者,大家达成了一个共识:如果改变自己,我们身边的世界也因此改变,社会则将向好的方向发展。

今年11月14日,全球青年领导力峰会的增加了青岛站,青岛美亚国际学校携手青岛白珊学校组织承办了这个活动,超过150名中学生和老师参加了峰会。

在紧凑、热烈的峰会上,中学生们踏上了聆听激励人心的演讲和自我反思的旅程。整个日程还包括启发思考的互动游戏、真实生活场景模拟。学生们发现,无论你是谁,来自何处,每个人都可以成为领导者,可以成为改变者。
