On the 26 May, the Xavier College Foundation hosted the annual Global Young Leaders dinner named in memory of Sir Lewis Burne (OX 1913). Attended by many previous participants, stories were shared with current Xavier students about their experiences and how the GYLC has shaped their lives. Through the Foundation Mr Peter Walsh, Trustee of the Eldon Hogan Trust, has enabled many students to attend the GYLC however ongoing support from the wider community is always required.
The Global Young Leaders Conference (GYLC) is the premier leadership development program for motivated and accomplished students from across the United States and more than 145 countries around the world. This 10-day leadership journey provides an out-of-classroom learning experience and rigorous curriculum that equips students with the confidence, independence, skills and global competiveness required of the next generation of future leaders
