Since we began our Teen Summits (youth conference) in 2007 as a part of our Aspire weekend, we have worked with thousands of youth over the years. The summit is a day of mentoring and empowerment consisting of breakout sessions such as college preparation, leadership, social & cultural diversity, and healthy relationships. It is incorporated into the school day and hosted at a local community college or university. The summit is catered and geared towards middle and high school students.
