Youth Empowerment Summit


The ‘Know Your History’ Youth Empowerment Summit takes place annually during Black History Month.  This is a free event open to the public.  The summit includes speakers, workshops, presentations, performances and panel discussions.

The goal of the youth empowerment summit is for youths to celebrate the importance of  education, culture and knowing their history. Each year Island Voice chooses has a theme used to educate and inspire the youths from Staten Island and from all over New York City.

The event is  funded by sponsors and donations.
