|Three Cups of Tea author Greg Mortenson and the Houston Youth Leadership Awards|
February 8, 2010, 7:00 p.m.
Enjoy an inspiring and entertaining evening as Nobel Prize Nominee Greg Mortenson, best known for his New York Times bestselling books Three Cups of Tea and Stones into Schools, recounts his remarkable journey from mountain climber to global humanitarian. Greg's non-profit Central Asia Institute promotes and supports community-based education, especially for girls, in remote regions of Pakistan and Afghanistan, where he has built over 130 schools.
From the beginning, Greg's efforts have been supported by school children and other organizations in the United States (and now around the world) through his Pennies for Peace program.
The Houston Youth Leadership Awards will feature Greg recognizing and interviewing selected young people from Houston to represent the many youths in the Houston area who have exhibited exceptional efforts as positive change agents in their communities and/or the world.
