Many organizations such as Chambers of Commerce, Jaycees, service
clubs (Rotary, Optimist, etc.), shopping centers and philanthropic
entities welcome the opportunity to applaud and encourage the
positive achievement, behavior, leadership and service of young
people in their communities.
Communities sponsoring ILN youth programs are encouraged to have
media specialists coordinate efforts with television, radio, newspapers
and magazines to tell the positive stories of their young people.
The ILN staff provides media counsel.
Schools that wish to identify, applaud and encourage positive
achievement, behavior, leadership and service find the Young Achievers
and Leaders of Tomorrow programs a great way to recognize their
student leaders and give them the opportunity for national awards.
Schools that wish to enhance the leadership skills of their students
and schools that wish to help their students at-risk achieve greater
success join together to participate in ILN's LEAP (Leadership
Education Achievement Partnership) mentoring program. Student
mentors may receive recognition for their leadership and service
as Young Achievers and Leaders of Tomorrow.
Since photographic Showcase displays are an important part of
the Young Achievers and Leaders of Tomorrow recognition, many
photographers photograph the students and organize the Showcases
as a community service at their own expense. Businesses. libraries,
schools and shopping centers are invited to display the Showcases.
