The Los Angeles Chapter of the International Leadership Foundation (ILF) will be hosting a half-day leadership workshop on March 19th at Almansor Court, located on 700 S. Almansor Street, Alhambra, CA 91801. This workshop is intended for students between the ages of 15-20, who are interested in becoming 21st century leaders. In this Leadership Training Program, students will participate in an interactive training session sponsored by Leadership Education for Asian Pacifics, Inc. (LEAP) LEAP has offered programs and workshops of varying lengths for Asian Americans and non-Asian Americans in all sectors. Inspired by LEAP’s training, many graduates have furthered their careers, forged coalitions, and founded organizations.

The International Leadership Foundation (ILF) is a non-profit organization that promotes civic involvement and economic effectiveness of the Asian American community. ILF helps the Asian American community exercise its full rights, by understanding America’s civic processes, and how these processes can be used to the benefit of the community. The mission of ILF is to develop young leaders from our Asian American communities in the United States and the international arena in the fields of public service and entrepreneurship through active communication with a network of business and community leaders.
In the past 16 years, ILF has provided scholarships and leadership training programs that prepare the younger generation to become leaders in the public, business, academic, community and professional arenas. The programs include the Civic Fellowship Program, Washington Leadership Program, International Exchange Program and the Young Ambassadors program. These programs offer a series of internships, lectures, seminars, and discussions on topics ranging from international business relations to public policy and the legislative process.
On March 19, 2016, participating students will also be invited to attend the Fifth Annual Inauguration of the Los Angeles Chapter’s Advisory Board members of ILF. This year, we are honored to have Janet Evans to be our keynote speaker at the luncheon. Janet is a 4-time Olympic Gold Medalist. She is widely considered to the greatest female distance swimmer in history. Janet broke a total of seven world records in three events during her career. Her 1500m world record stood for 20 years, her 800m world record stood for 21 years, and her 400m world record stood for 19 years. These records were some of the longest standing records on the swimming books. She retired from competitive swimming at the end of the Atlanta Games in 1996, but made a comeback competing in the Olympic Trials in 2012 at the age of 40. She successfully qualified for the Trials, and had the honor of trying out for the Olympic Team in both events that year. Once again a retired athlete, Janet lives in Southern California with her husband & two young children.
