Youth Initiative Summit Goes Off With Bang!
Community members met in August for the first ever Positive Youth Initiative Summit with great success! We had over 20 people in attendance representing various sectors of the community that support and work with youth. The purpose of the first meeting was simply to bring everyone together and have them start thinking creatively about what they would like this initiative to accomplish.
The group discussed a wide range of topics including potential projects areas to focus on, what resources are available, a potential vision for the initiative, and what other groups to invite. Everyone at the meeting had something to say and everyone had a voice. The group agreed to reconvene in late October to continue the conversation to decide on what to work on. We are excited to see this group grow, learn from each other and achieve great things!
