Save the Date – Youth Summit October 27th

Colorado Rising and Partners announce Sponsorhip Opportunities for Youth Summit

The Youth Unity Rising Summit being held on October 27th, 2023 at CSU Spur – Hydro will provide high school aged youth of Colorado with immersive learning experiences through student-led workshops, a panel discussion of youth organizers, and empowering resources. The purpose of the event is to engage young leaders in a day-long summit to learn about how they can advocate for climate and social justices, engage in stewardship projects to protect our environment, and participate in community healing.
 
Youth will have the opportunity to connect with community organizations with service action, internship, and career opportunities in our morning resource fair. Interactive workshops, led by student activists, will include information on environmental justice, stewardship, advocacy, mental health resilience, and inclusive wellness.
