You-topia

Utopia starts with you!

The Fresno Unified School District, Youth Leadership Institute (YLI), and Edison High School Friday Night Live (FNL) Chapter have partnered with several local organizations to host their Second Fresno Teen Summit. Youth leaders from the Edison High School FNL chapter, Fresno Boys and Men of Color, and the Fresno Youth Commission have teamed up with organizers to plan every aspect of the event.

The event will include:

  • keynote presentations
  • various informational booths
  • workshops on key topics impacting teens
  • information on how you can impact your community &
  • raffles
  • T-shirt for FIRST 200 participants!

The goal of the workshops is to help participants identify issues affecting teens, and to provide them opportunities to understand, overcome and contribute solutions to any challenges they might be facing. The informational booths will be providing information about general services that are available to teens in health, school, youth services and future careers.

The 2017 Fresno Teen Summit is scheduled for Saturday, March 25, 2017 from 8:00 am to 3:00 pm and will be open to all Fresno County 8th-12th grade youth. This event is FREE to all youth and will include breakfast and lunch as well as a free t-shirt. There will be a guest speaker in the morning and afternoon, as well as various raffle prizes given away during lunch. Students will have the opportunity to register for the event here on this website.
