Our Youth Summit Goals and Mission include:

  1. Increasing the ability of youth from different cultures and backgrounds to work together, learn from each other, and gain multi-cultural understanding and appreciation.
  2. Providing practical leadership training for youth to further their ability to plan and carry out presentation and service projects in their school and communities.
  3. Educating youth about moving towards self-sufficiency through academic success, increased employability skills, and community
