2014 Illinois Youth Summit

Illinois Youth Summit

The Illinois Youth Summit creates awareness and fosters civic action on current policy issues of importance to students and their communities. In this semester-long program, students select three public policies for study, conduct polling, develop related service projects, and post position statements using CRFC developed materials. The program culminates with student delegates and policymakers before a Town Hall Meeting on the issues.

Registration for this school year program includes participation for a teacher and student delegates to participate on the dates below, as well as class curriculum and program support from CRFC.

This year's important dates are:

November 1, 2013 - December 20 - policy issue selection takes place on-line

November 8, 2013 - program registration deadline

February 14, 2014– student advisory committee meeting 1 (downtown Chicago)

March 14, 2014 – student advisory committee meeting 2 (downtown Chicago)

May 2, 2014 - conference (Dirksen Federal Building - Chicago)

*Please note that as a part of the Illinois Youth Summit Program, 2 delegates from each class must attend each of the student advisory meetings.  The number of student delegates per school that participate in the final conference will be allocated based on the final number of schools registered.


There is no limit on the number of students who participate in school-based activities. The maximum number of student delegates per school will be determined by the total number of registered schools for the program. In general, delegations normally include 10-12 students per school.  Exceptions can sometimes be made on a case-by-case basis.
