Sunwah GYLN

The Global Young Leaders Network (GYLN) is a diverse, global community of outstanding young leaders between the age of 18 and 25 who volunteer themselves to grow and develop their international outlook, leadership skills, and improve their commitment to public and social services.

GYLN was established in 2014 by the Sunwah Foundation, which is collaborating with GYAN to start a chapter on MSU's campus. Joining a network of ten existing chapters across the globe, GYLN USA will build a community of leaders who are committed to serve, equipped to lead, enterprising in action, and plugged into a network of like-minded individuals who are passionate about social development.

Students belonging to GYLN at MSU have an extraordinary opportunity to travel to international forums as well as plan activities and service projects with financial backing from the Foundation and operational support from chapter coordinators.

GYLN Charter & Upcoming Elections

GYLN Members drafted the GYLN Charter in the Spring of 2020 to help guide the Chapter's future growth. The Chapter is holding its inaugural elections for student leadership positions in the Fall of 2020. A list of leadership positions and their roles and responsibilities is available here.

We would like to thank Jason Choi, Tomas Keck, Peyton Naragon, and Racheal Nassimbwa for serving on the Student Advisory Council during the chapter's early development.
