2012 Youth and Family Summit


The 2012 Youth & Family Summit was informed by the previous efforts and recent feedback.  The 2012 Summit’s youth programming track aims to facilitate educational success among participants through the following:

  • Developing and engaging youth in critical thinking about their education, including the role of family, schools, community, and culture.
  • Empowering youth to advocate for quality education.
  • Equipping them with skills to organize and collaborate with peers to build student organizations.
  • Promoting educational achievement and success among youth.
  • Engaging youth in critical and productive dialogue about social issues such as equity, race, class, and representation and their role in education.
Ladies First was the only female in-school program asked to represent and attend this summit.  For more information on the Youth and Family Summit, please check out:
