International Leadership Network (ILN) has developed
alliances with many organizations that serve young people. Through
ILN's Young Achievers and Leaders of Tomorrow programs, members
of established youth programs receive recognition for their achievements
within their organizations and are given the opportunity for ILN
Scouts of America
For many years, there has been an annual Eagle Scout Showcase in Omaha,
Nebraska. Using Omaha as a role model, other cities are encouraged
to establish Showcases and recognize their Boy Scouts as Young Achievers
and Leaders of Tomorrow.
Based and Community Organizations
Leaders of faith based and community youth groups and organizations
are encouraged to recognize their students as Young Achievers and
Leaders of Tomorrow. Prior to their nomination for ILN recognition,
these students may be honored within their communities at special
events, in publications and photographic Showcase exhibits.
Successful 4-H Young Achievers programs in Indiana and California
annually honor many outstanding students through Showcase exhibits
and special events. Communities throughout the country are encouraged
to recognize their 4-H leaders as Young Achievers and Leaders of
Scouts of the USA
Following a pilot program in Jackson, Michigan in 1996, a number of
Councils launched Girl Scout Showcases that spotlight the activities
and accomplishments of their members. These have included Gold Award
Showcases, Silver Award Showcases, etc. The Girl Scouts of the USA
annually distribute Young Achievers and Leaders of Tomorrow information
and forms to all Councils.
Junior Achievement of Mississippi Valley, Inc. is
an enthusiastic participant in the Young Achievers program. They
annually distribute information and forms to staff and volunteers.
Other Junior Achievement organizations are encouraged to follow
the St. Louis area and give their members the opportunity for
this very special recognition.
