Highlights of the International Youth Leadership Summit were a kickoff reception at the
Japanese Ambassador’s Residence; networking with other student leaders from around the
world; meeting U.S. Congressional, diplomatic, and world leaders; and learning how other sister
cities have built successful programs and international relationships.
