Youth Summit For Teens
Saturday, Nov. 5, 2016



GLSEN Northeast Ohio in collaboration with Teen Pride Network will host their 2nd Youth Summit for teens in grades 8 to 12 on Saturday, November 5.  GLSEN NEO has held 10 youth conferences in Northeast Ohio and annually, students report that the day is one of their favorites of the year.  


This year students at this conference will be engaged in workshops about the LGBTQ and Ally Experience through discussions and activities that students can take back to their school communities.  Students do not have to have a Gay-Straight Alliance in their schools to attend.  All students are welcome as long as they would like to join in this day of socializing and self-growth.


The summit will begin at 8:30 with a light breakfast and will end at 4:00.  The event is free of charge, and lunch will be provided.  The location is at Unitarian Universalist Church of Akron in Fairlawn Ohio.   Please know that all adult chaperones working with GLSEN Northeast Ohio and Teen Pride Network have completed background checks and are permitted to work with young people.
