The Summit will bring together more than 150 male and female youth (ages 15-21) from local high schools, Department of Rehabilitation Services, Mental Health Organizations and more. Youth will engage in an interactive and impactful afternoon surrounding Education, Empowerment, Employment Opportunities and Etiquette. The mission of the summit serves to encourage and inspire the youth to be the change they desire to see in their communities.

“We want to ensure we reach as many young Americans as possible who want and need a mentor. It is a proven fact that quality mentoring can help keep kids in school, out of trouble and on a path toward being productive and engaged citizens. The Success is a Lifestyle Summit brings us together to celebrate and chart the course for high-impact expanded mentoring that will result in a stronger, more productive society.”
