Saint Paul College
235 Marshall Ave, St. Paul
Do you want to make your school safe, supportive, and empowering for all students? Do you think youth should have more of a say in the decisions that affect them?
The 2016 Youth Summit is a powerful event for students in grades 9-12.* This event brings hundreds of LGBTQ youth and allies together for leadership development, networking, and the chance to speak directly with state legislators about issues that matter. The day begins with fun activities, speakers, and workshops led by youth facilitators. Adults who are present will attend sessions on creating inclusive schools and best practices for supporting LGBTQ youth. After lunch, participants will take a 5-minute bus ride to the State Capitol for meetings with legislators.
The cost is $15 per person which includes lunch, materials, and transportation from St. Paul College to the Capitol and back. Scholarships are available for anyone in need. Last year’s Youth Summit was at capacity so register asap. The deadline to register is Thursday, March 2nd.
Teachers, we encourage you to bring a group!
Students, sign up and attend with your friends or come on your own!
