The Youth Action Summit is designed and led by youth. We ask that every group that participates bring an activity, information, or game they would like to share with youth from other communities. After youth get a chance to listen to each other, we will close the event with a delicious communal meal.
Our Youth Action programs support the leadership of our young people through authentic interactive programs in Civic Engagement, Career Pathways, Health & Wellness, and School Climate.
