Event Details

“We can choose to be affected by the world OR we can choose to affect the world.”  

Heidi Wills

                                                               

The Children and Youth Summit is an annual event that brings together about 200 youth for a day at the Capitol each October. Participants identify the key issues that they believe the Hawaii State Legislature needs to address to make Hawaii a better place to live, learn, and work.

In 2018, top priorities selected by the youth included sustainable resources and eliminating coral bleaching, policies to reform sexual education in Hawaii’s public-school system and protective state policies to guard women’s rights, mental health and suicide prevention, creating programs and support for the inclusion of all youth (e.g. community gardens, workshops, bus pass availability, etc.), and college readiness and scholarship/financial aid guidance.

To maximize opportunities for youth participation, adults are welcome only if accompanied by youth. Registration will start at 8:30 a.m. and the event will start at 9 a.m.

We have a limited number of travel scholarship for youth and their advisors from neighbor islands.  There is a place on the registration page to request for the travel scholarship. Please be advised that this subsidy is not available for adults traveling alone.

Continental breakfast and lunch will be provided. Please bring a refillable water bottle so we can save environmental resources. Please also bring a jacket because the Capitol can be chilly.

We look forward to seeing you!

If you have any questions, please contact Kierra Thompson (Kierra@hysn.org)
