Youth will be able to participate in the Youth Leadership Track as teams to create a plan for a community project. Once back in their communities, the teams can implement their plans with the tools they received at the Prevention Summit.
Youth Track Description & Goal
The Youth Leadership Track is for youth in middle and high school (ages 12 through 18). The Goal of the Youth Leadership Track is to teach youth in leadership roles to use the Strategic Prevention Framework to plan, develop, implement and evaluate successful strategies for their communities.
In these sessions, youth with their identified Team Adult Advisor, will receive information on substance abuse topics, hear examples of successful youth projects, and attend workshops to gain skills to use in their own projects.
Please Note: In order to participate in the Youth Leadership Track, both youth and the Team Adult Advisor must participate in all components of the youth track together and cannot attend any other workshops during the Prevention Summit.
