High school students are invited to attend the 4th annual Youth Summit!
This is a great opportunity for you to collaborate, build leadership skills and discuss ways to make a difference on government policies, issues and decisions that impact YOU.
At the summit, teens will meet and collaborate with leaders from other schools and youth programs across the community.
- Build leadership skills
- Learn about government
- Collaborate with other students on a Youth Agenda - which policies and issues do YOU think officials should be working on?
- Talk with other teens about ways to connect every high school and youth organization with public officials, policy-makers and decision-makers
- Get information about youth involvement for the Charlotte in 2012 DNC convention (non-partisan)
- Represent your school, youth program or your interests in community issues, policies and decisions (schools, parks, libraries, transportation, environment, safety, budgets and more)
- Service hours available
High school student leaders - both serving in official leadership roles on student council/clubs and emerging leaders who want to make a difference at school and in the community. If you care what happens at your school or in the community, you're a leader.
