What will your students gain by attending?
With the escalation of violence among today’s youth matched only by the alarming rate of incarcerations, it is imperative to examine the correlation between the two. Based on a hypothesis that many of the underlying causes of youth violence lie in and are exacerbated by the staggering rate of incarcerations that destroy the family base of millions, The 2016 National Youth Summit will approach solutions to over-incarceration and hyper-policing through the development of revised systems. Each participant is expected to return to their communities with:
- A heightened self-esteem
- A deeper understanding of personal, national and global economics
- An awareness of underlying causes of various social ills including violence and crime
- The ability to teach and lead others towards a less punitive society
- Established relationships with students, business leaders, and educators throughout the country
- A network of systems to continue the conversation and broaden the development of workable solutions
- An ability to speak and strategize in a group setting
- An ability to create a vision and bring it from concept to policy
