The Youth Summit is a powerful event for students in grades 9-12. This event brings over 500 LGBTQ+ youth and allies together for leadership development, networking, and the chance to speak directly with state legislators about issues that matter to them. The day begins with an opening ceremony, speakers, and youth-led workshops. Adults will attend sessions on creating inclusive schools and best practices for supporting LGBTQ+ youth. After lunch, participants will head to the State Capitol for lobbying meetings with their legislators.
