LEAD Nation will host it’s 5th annual South Florida Youth Summit May 18 – 20, 2017. The South Florida Youth Summit is South Florida’s largest gathering of youth and parents. This year’s summit will focus on redefining leadership in 2017. The summit will allow youth to become active participants in creating positive social change in their communities through various breakout sessions on advocacy, public speaking, STEM, entrepreneurship and many more. By learning this highly valuable and relevant 21st century skill, these young people are shifting the trajectory of their futures and transforming their relationships with their communities.
Registration will be open towards late February 2017.
The purpose of the South Florida Youth Summit is to bridge youth and nonprofit organizations of South Florida together
The South Florida Youth Summit has identified 5 focus areas within the youth community that will be included in a year-long program of teaching and mentoring. No other program in South Florida has an agenda this comprehensive to address issues and provide solutions. National data shows that students who are mentored (group and individual) have higher graduation rates, lower incidences of violence, and perform better overall in school.
Provide South Florida’s youth with a 2-3 day event that will:
- Inspire youth to become advocates for change in their schools and communities.
- Empower youth into becoming proactive in breaking gender, racial and cultural barriers.
- Connect youth with community organizations that may aid them in becoming “the change they wish to see”
- Serve youth with educational and leadership opportunities that will encourage them to achieve their highest goals and potential.
