Sachem High School East freshman Jason Griff has been selected to attend the prestigious Global Young Leaders Conference hosted by Envision. 

The 10-day conference held in Washington, D.C. and New York City that begins June 18 aims to expose student leaders to the challenges associated with international diplomacy and foster a plethora of skills necessary to excel during international affairs in future careers. The conference boasts a diverse attendance of students from across the United States and over 145 countries. As part of the conference, Jason will visit a number of international embassies and local monuments, participate in global issues workshops and hone the communication, decision-making and negotiation skills essential to leadership roles. 

“I look forward to interacting with the many international students from around the world,” Jason said. “It is an incredible opportunity to act as an ambassador for the United States.” 

This is Jason’s second opportunity to attend a conference hosted by Envision. In sixth grade, Jason attended the Junior National Young Leaders Conference held in Washington, D.C.
