Empowering gear up youth
The Youth Leadership Summit (YLS) helps GEAR UP high school students identify and maximize their leadership skills, create a national network of peers, and obtain the tools and training to make positive change happen in their communities and around the world.
Over 3.5 days, the YLS enhances participants’ ability to speak confidently, work effectively in teams, and builds their capacity to lead. The program culminates with a student-led presentation to the NCCEP/GEAR UP Annual Conference attendees.
The 2020 Youth Leadership Summit (YLS) will take place July 19–22, 2020 at the NCCEP/GEAR UP Annual Conference in Washington, DC.
