At the end of the session, Impact Coaches from all country teams shared their advice for Emerging Leaders as they prepared to take the virtual stage: “
- Courage: embrace the uncomfortable, take risk, encourage others
- Connection: understand yourself and leverage the rich diversity of others
Week four also featured Volunteer Day, a day where Emerging Leaders gave back to the community through volunteering at Bay Area initiatives that serve the local community. Whether it was through helping seniors at the Community Technology Network, assembling STEM kits with Resource Area For Teaching, packing donation boxes at Community Impact Lab or planting in a community garden, Emerging Leaders had an opportunity to better learn about community needs in the Bay Area and the organizations that are dedicated to creating solutions.
