Unleash the Power Within Youth Leadership is a four-day program held in conjunction with Tony Robbins Unleash the Power Within (UPW) event. Youth ages 14-17 participate in UPW as a collective group with event-experienced Captains. Together they create breakthroughs, move beyond fears and limiting beliefs, accomplish goals and realize true desires.
The Foundation presented its first UPW Youth Leadership Program in Orlando, Florida in 2004. Hundreds of students, ages 14 through 17, have now walked on fire with a group of peers in this life changing program, learning the skills to lead in their own lives.
