Our youth empowerment summit is a multicultural event that celebrates our differences and similarities, while exploring our talents and gifts. Our summit is about inspiring and educating each other while improving our communities. The summit is separated into four categories: Speakers, Panel Discussions, Performances and Interactive Workshops. We will have guest speakers from different organizations giving advice and offering key tips on youth empowerment, mentorship and becoming successful.

We will have panel discussions about NYPD and community relationship development. There will be performances, & finally, we will include interactive workshops that will celebrate our differences and similarities. The summit is targeted to high school to college students. Parents and adults are welcome to attend. We provide a platform for networking and job opportunities as there will be plenty of professional and companies at the summit, most are looking to hire youths immediately.
