Kailua-Kona, HI, May 12, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- The Islands Society is pleased to announce the launch of a new program for emerging leaders across the Neighbor Islands of Hawaii.
Specifically, the Neighbor Islands Emerging Leaders Program will provide young leaders a platform to share their insights on how we can improve the health and well-being of island communities around the world. Through the Neighbor Islands Emerging Leaders Program, the Islands Society will recognize college students and young professionals from the Big Island, Kauai, Lanai, Maui, and Molokai. The Society will then provide those individuals with an opportunity to share their insights on how the health and well-being of other island communities can be improved based on their own life experiences.
Anyone interested in nominating a young leader should contact Keiko Ono, Managing Director of the Pacific Islands Society, at email@example.com. Nominations are being accepted on a rolling basis.
