Join us for Youth Got This 2024!

The Regional Youth Got This Summit was created to help give youth the power to confidently be themselves, share their voices, make a difference, and make the right choices.

The goal of the summit is to provide a safe, fun, and positive environment in which youth can discover their own personal leadership strengths.  This youth summit is an opportunity for youth across the five-county region to participate in teambuilding activities, learn communication skills, work to discover their leadership strengths, and build a mental library of healthy coping skills.

7th through 9th graders, join us from 8:30am – 3:30pm on Wednesday, April 17th at Camp Korey for the 2024 Youth Got This Summit!

This year, we will explore how to create and sustain healthy relationships, explore mental health coping skills, and discover leadership skills you can bring back to your own community.
