Event description

Description

No young person should have to live on the streets. Yet, Southern Nevada has one of the highest rates of youth homelessness in the nation. Please join us on November 2, 2018 as stakeholders across sectors come together to bring the community-wide Movement to End Youth Homelessness in Southern Nevada to action at the 2018 Youth Homelessness Summit, presented by Nevada Partnership for Homeless Youth (NPHY) and Sands Cares, the corporate giving and community engagement program of Las Vegas Sands Corp.

Last year's inaugural summit launched the Movement to End Youth Homelessness in Southern Nevada, a community-wide effort to attack youth homelessness from all angles, and began a year-long planning process to create the first-ever Southern Nevada Plan to Address and End Youth Homelessness. Built through facilitation by national experts and input from a wide range of community partners, the Plan represents the first coordinated, directed, community-wide response to youth homelessness in the Las Vegas Valley.

The completed plan will be unveiled at the 2018 Summit, along with analysis by local experts, stories shared and engaging activities led by current and formerly homeless youth, interactive updates on The Movement to End Youth Homelessness in Southern Nevada, and an inspiring keynote by a national leader in the fight against youth homelessness. The afternoon will provide an opportunity for attendees to help bring the Plan to life through action-oriented break-out sessions on Legislative Policy, Fundraising, Systems Collaboration, Innovative Housing/Service Models, and Private/Public Sector Partnerships.

Over the course of 2018, our community created a road-map to address youth homelessness Southern Nevada. Now, we need business leaders, policymakers, federal partners, local and state government representatives, philanthropists, educators, social services providers, and concerned citizens to come together to learn more about this critical issue and take action to make a real, lasting impact.

The only way we can create real change is together. We need you to #bethemovement in action! Register on this page today or call 702-969-2196 with questions or concerns. We can't wait to see you there!
