Technology is Leading The Way

We hope everyone is having a great start to the new school year. Although summer has officially come and gone, there is reason to be excited. The Anthony Muñoz Foundation is gearing up for our annual Youth Leadership Seminar!

As Megan briefly hinted at in our last post, the theme of this year’s Youth Leadership Seminar is Plugged In. Now you might wonder what this really means, so let me explain.

First, we will get you pumped up with a concert featuring the wonderful sounds of KJ-52! This is sure to get you going!

Following his performance, we will hear from our guest speakers who will help explore how leaders are using technology to empower others and give back to their communities. We’ll be encouraging students not to unplug, but to get plugged in to the right sources. We’re talking about stepping-up and getting involved in your school, community, and city. Involvement in valuable organizations and activities can expand your ability to lead others. A great leader in the technological world, Bill Gates, once said, “As we look ahead into the next century, leaders will be those who empower others.”

Technological advancements have really launched off over the past few years and there is no sign of them slowing down in the next few. As technology changes at a rapid pace, we must remain #PluggedIn to stay ahead of the curve as we strive to be among the other leaders of the world. Take a look at how social media is leading the way in higher education and why it is so important that, as a young leader, you are keeping up with society.

Also, don’t forget to check out our website to register today and keep up with us on Twitter and Facebook as we update you and reveal this year’s speakers for YLS 2013!
