Youth Empowerment

Charity implies safety nets and band-aids.
I prefer ‘empowering’ ...creating trampolines and ladders rather than nets.

Youth Empowerment Summit (YES!)

YES! is GCAPP’s premier convening for young people. Held in multiple regions across the state, this youth-driven event brings together over 500 high school students to address issues and topics that are important to them. Topics, chosen by youth, often center around goal setting, mental health concerns, academic pressure, healthy relationships, peer pressure, and social change. YES! consists of a town hall format to allow youth to share their views on a broad range of topics, and several breakout sessions which allow them to further discuss, without judgment, what matters to them and get helpful information from experts.
