SEALNet’s mission is to bring service and to promote the spirit of service leadership among Southeast Asian communities in the US and abroad . They strive to accomplish this by building and nurturing a community of service leaders who are committed to serve, equipped to lead, enterprising in action, and plugged into a network of like hearted individuals who are passionate about social development. In 2013, SEALNet developed the inaugural Youth Leadership Summit (YLS) in Singapore and provided valuable experiences and platforms for 18 participants to learn about the regional collaboration. Among those participants, 8 of them became project leaders of SEALNet Service Leadership Projects in 2014. Now, SEALNet Youth Leadership Summit 2015 seeks to continue the success of YLS13 and bring the youths of Southeast Asia together for a 10-day-long Leadership Summit, in which they can share their works, widen their perspectives, and grow as potential leaders along with their friends.
The central theme of the YLS15 is Empowerment and Friendship. The Summit 2015 will be a ten-day story that reinforces the central theme. The ten days will not only revolve around the three main goals: Self-development, Vision of Southeast Asia, and Project Management Skills; participants and organizers will connect these three pillars to create a story of the Summit and the journey as SEALNutters together.
The SEALNet Youth Leadership Summit 2015 is aimed for students from 17-22 years old who are in either: their last 2 years of high school (or equivalent secondary education), pre-university level, or university level.
Costs and Scholarships
The summit’s on-site expenses are free, and will be covered by SEALNet. However, participants must cover their own travel expenses to and back from Hanoi, Vietnam and any additional expenses of their own during the time of the summit. In addition, each participant is suggested to be responsible for fundraising $200 USD prior to coming to the summit. Please note that this fundraising contribution is NOT a mandatory fee to attend the summit. Also, financial aid for flight tickets to attend Summit is available on a case-by-case basis.
