Do you often feel like your voice isn’t being heard in your schools or communities? Here’s your chance to say what’s on your mind! Share your concerns, innovative ideas, and passions with a room full of equally bright and charged teens!
The Winter Institute presents the Central MS Youth Summit! Come join teens from across Central Mississippi as they take on the theme "Teen Imagined, Teen Driven: Bridging the gap between thought and action” through a series of discussions, workshops, and networking opportunities.
The summit will feature panelists from various academic and educational activist backgrounds and will provide an honest and safe forum for Mississippi's teens to share their experiences and innovative ideas, and cultivate change.
Due to generous grants and donations, the one-day event is free and open to SYI alumni and friends grades 9-12. Breakfast and lunch will be provided. Please note that the summit organizers cannot cover any expenses related to the Youth Summit 2013 (e.g. transportation to and from the event site, accommodation, etc).
Space is limited, so register quickly! For more information, please contact Melody Frierson at firstname.lastname@example.org or 662-915-1644.
