To broaden public awareness and understanding of international affairs, engaging Oregonians with the world—and with each other. Cultivating global citizens and creating bridge-building experiences for youth and adults, turning strangers into friends, youth into leaders, and opinions into questions.

“[Young Leaders in Action] meant the world to me. I was surrounded by like-minded people who were passionate about global issues. I felt empowered and confident in my abilities and feel motivated to interact with others to instigate change.”
