What is the Youth Leadership Festival?

The Youth Leadership Festival is a 5 day immersive experience, tucked in the abounding forests of northern Oregon. The festival integrates ancient wisdom, experiential workshop learning, and self-reflection. 

A movement with the goal to achieve 3 aspects of a fulfilled human life:

  1. Awareness
  2. Collectiveness
  3. Initiative

These three aspects cannot be attained through an intellectual knowing but instead through an experiential journey.

What makes us unique?

We offer an environment that leads our participants on a journey of profound self-evolution and conscious leadership development through our 3 foundational pillars: 

Self Awareness, Awareness of Others, Heart Coherence

Self Awareness
  • To be aware of how you feel, think, and act.
  • To act and speak from a calm and decisive state
  • To have clarity on your skills and passions.
Awareness of Others
  • To consider your impact on others.
  • To grow in compassion and empathy
  • To serve as a calm and decisive leader for others
Heart Coherence
  • To be conscious of your companies impact on the planet
  • You are present and connected with those around you.
  • Heart, mind, and emotions are synchronized and balanced
Conscious Leader

This synergistic learning experience creates a firm foundation for individuals interested in leadership and personal evolution.

Corporate Partners

Alcohol and drug policy: RQ Global’s overall mission in creating young conscious leaders, does not include the use of alcohol or illegal substances.
