“Through The John Maxwell Team Global Youth Initiative, we have the chance to influence tomorrow’s leaders today,” said Jacklyn Ruan, Certified John Maxwell Team Member. “With John Maxwell, I’ve learned that leadership develops daily, not in a day. Our goal is to spark an intentional and lifelong leadership interest in today’s youth.” Donnalie Edwards-Cabey, John Maxwell Team member notes “this week will be transformational in the lives of many young people around the world, we are excited by this global opportunity to add value to the lives of local youth and help them craft and follow a positive path, as they learn to use failure as a spring board to personal success”.
