The Sustainable Hawaii Youth Leadership Initiative's mission is to inspire young people to envision, plan and create a more sustainable future for their lives and their islands. Founded in 2010 on Hawaii Island, SHYLI expanded to Lanai (2012) and Oahu (2014). The 2015 Youth Delegates represent Hawaii's diverse cultures - native Hawaiian, Japanese, Filipino, Mexican, Puerto Rican and Samoan. In SHYLI's year-round Fellowship Program youth receive ongoing leadership training. After the Summit they refine their Sustainability-In-Action Projects. At events around the island and state, they showcase their projects develop public speaking, writing, presentation skills. At SHYLI's Job Shadow Day youth are matched with business, government and academic professionals in their fields of interest. At SHYLI's Design Sustainable Hawaii Forum youth share their vision and their progress with their projects with Hawaii's decision makers from business, public policy, education and nonprofits. Founded in 2010 on Hawaii Island, SHYLI expanded to Lanai (2012) and Oahu (2013). SHYLI is a project of the Stone Soup Leadership Institute, a 501c3 non-profit education organization.
