UP Youth Facilitators Present at the Vermont Council on Rural Development Leadership Summit

August 15 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

Youth Opportunity and Aspiration: What can we do to ensure youth in Vermont can be successful in meeting goals and aspirations for the future?

The strength of our democracy, the vitality of our economy, and the emotional and physical well-being of our population start with our youth and a shared belief in a positive future. In order to build strong communities and realize our vision for a thriving economy, we must adequately prepare our youth with the tools, support, and connections they need to establish and then realize educational, career, and life goals and expectations; effectively engage in the economy of today and of the future; and seize opportunities here in Vermont and beyond. This all requires youth and adults to work together, as partners,  in their communities to create systemic change. This session will be facilitated and led by youth from across VT on their experience and perspectives on driving change in their communities. Participants will engage in dialogue to inform the next steps for the Youth Opportunity initiative.
