“Thank you so much. My daughter has not been the same since she left the summit. She’s become more mature and takes her school work much more seriously.” S Winters, Parent
The NYS 2017 | November 13th & 14th, 2017
Parents, we welcome you and your teens to The National Youth Summit on Education, Justice and the US Economy: The Leadership Academy in Atlanta, GA. We continue to plan an extraordinary event that will help them take ownership of their educational experience and assist their teachers and administrators to create an atmosphere where their brilliance and leadership helps them achieve educational excellence.
Recognizing these young men and women often have one foot still planted in the comfort of childhood and the other stepping into the challenges and responsibilities of adulthood, we’re prepared for both. We hope the following information answers your questions and concerns about your child’s participation. If not, please feel free to contact us by email at TheEthicsProject@gmail.com or by phone at 314-495-9528. As we approach the weeks preceding the Summit, please understand that responses may be delayed.
