Talent Show Fundraiser

Every year since 2013, GLIFY has been holding a youth talent show presenting a wide variety of talent and cultures. It also is a stage where children with special needs demonstrate exceptional artistic skills. The talent show raises thousands of dollars to benefit children's causes.

​​​Supporting Youth Mental Health Awareness

At the end of 2020, GLIFY looked over the efforts the Alan Hu Foundation put in raising mental health awareness. Alan was a former GLIFY member and many of our members attend the same schools in Pleasanton. We value and admire the foundation's efforts in helping people who suffer from mental illness, and decided to donate $1000 in memory of Alan and support the foundation in its mission to promote mental health, raise awareness and remove stigma surrounding psychiatric disorders, and support fundamental research for cures.

Since 2013, Global Leadership Initiatives for Youth has raised $1200 per year to support three Uganda Orphanage Children James Mukisa, Miravle Nakawesa and Oliva Betty. With the sponsorship of GLIFY, the three children were able to be sent to foster families, and to get educated in school.
