Event Details

Speak Out. Act Up. Be the Change.

The Youth Environmental Summit (YES) is an annual conference for middle and high school students (grades 6-12). YES is an opportunity to learn about environmental issues and get involved in local communities.  The mission of YES is to inspire, encourage, and prepare youth for a life of environmental responsibility, service and leadership by increasing awareness and knowledge of environmental issues and fostering leadership skills.

At YES participants engage in hands-on workshops, action-inspiring discussions, networking with environmental professionals and like-minded peers, and much, much more!
