The annual Youth Leadership Summit invites middle school and high school teens to learn about various career and college opportunities from volunteers who range from active college students to veteran career professionals in a wide spectrum of fields and vocations. Moderated panel discussions are designed to inspire youth to consider potential future pathways and the realities of life beyond high school.
SAVE THE DATE: JUNE 3, 2021
This summit is open to all teens

The Youth Leadership Retreat provides middle school youth from NYC neighborhoods with freedom and encouragement that is often lacking in their communities back in the city. Our signature program is a 3-day overnight trip at one of the country's most beautiful camp facilities, providing the sleep-away camp experience to kids who otherwise may never have had the opportunity. Our retreat allows youth to embark on a journey that enriches the mind, exercises the body, and bolsters the soul.
Activities include high and low ropes course challenges, rock climbing, team building, outdoor education, S.T.E.M. projects, campfire songs and more. Participants sleep in cabins and experience the world outside of the city.
Previous destinations include the Delaware Water Gap in New Jersey, the Catskills in Upstate New York and The Berkshires in Northwest Connecticut.
