EMERGE IS A ONE-DAY EVENT FOR OUR NEXT GENERATION OF HIGH SCHOOL LEADERS TO UNITE AND TO BE EMPOWERED

Taking On Tomorrow: My Future, Our Hawaii is the theme for this year's conference. The team of EMERGE believes in recognizing the student voice and empowering them to see beyond themselves for their future and the future of Hawaii. Leaders alike can attest to the practice of imagining the "What If's..." and discovering that change is possible. Join us for an event that empowers, encourages, and engages youth to practice possibility thinking and apply it to their personal and academic life.
