The Youth Venture Summit is the annual gathering of the Youth Venture community. The conference brings together over 100 Youth Venturers and young leaders interested in creating change, as well as the adult allies and professionals who support young changemakers.
At the Summit attendees participate in skill-building and Venture-strengthening workshops, engage in meaningful dialogue to share experiences and perspectives, and network with each other to identify common areas of interest and ways to collaborate. This opportunity to meet other young changemakers; to share thoughts and experiences, make connections, and receive support and acknowledgement is unsurpassed. The Youth Venture Summit is a critical component of building a Venturer community, providing ongoing leadership and development opportunities, and growing the global movement of young changemakers.
The overall experience is one where attendees strengthen their connection to Youth Venture and the global movement they are building while forming bonds with one another. The Summit is a three-day conference, but it is also a journey on which attendees embark together.
This year's Summit will be July 26-29 in Washington, DC at George Washington University's Mount Vernon Campus!
As in previous years, 2012 will offer various levels of workshops for the beginning, intermediate or advanced young changemaker, plus an adult track. And for the first time, the YV Summit will have a specialized University track for students out of high school and university Venture teams. Also, this Summit offers a Pre-Conference DC Tour on Wednesday, July 25th for participants to explore the nation’s capital in an extra day-long adventure.
