Talent Show Fundraiser

Since 2013, Global Leadership Initiative has held youth talent show fundraising  for 5 years. As the largest fundraising event, the talent show is a huge success with the teamwork of all GLI members. From recruiting talents and designing flyers and programs to operating stage lights, sound systems, video recording and other logistics, the event was organized entirely by students. Each year, the talent show brings together a variety of people of different backgrounds, talents, and cultures for a night of laughter and entertainment, excitement and awe, and beauty and inspiration. In addition to giving the audience high-quality entertainment, the talent show also raises thousands dollars through ticket sales. All of this money have been donated to various causes, including FCSN, Autism Speaks, Action for Children, San Francisco City Impact, Family Giving Tree, and many more. GLI has allowed for youth to use their diverse talents and skills to give back the community and benefit everyone.

Supporting Children in Need

Since 2013, Global Leadership Initiative has raised $1200 per year to support three Uganda Orphanage Children James Mukisa, Miravle Nakawesa and Oliva Betty. With the sponsorship of GLI, the three children were able to be sent to foster families, and to get educated in school. Picture 1 shows GLI members Allison Dai and Hannah Cao with three orphanage children.

Global Leadership sponsors FCSN annually by donating $1500 to the institution in 2018. This year GLI also volunteered at FCSN's Family Funfest on August 19, 2018.
