generationOn Youth Summit Preconference
Sponsored by Hasbro
Sunday, June 17, 2012 1- 4 pm
The generationOn Youth Summit will gather 250 young people for an afternoon of civic dialogue and service-learning including a panel discussion with notable youth leaders, leadership skill building activities and a service project to benefit the local Chicago community!
All attendees will be equipped with a toolkit to identify their assets, interests and community needs and develop a civic engagement action plan to address an issue area of their choice. Through community mapping exercises, students will find ways to use service as a solution for identified community challenges. Armed with this new expertise, students will return to their communities equipped to implement their service plans to better effect change in their communities.
This event is FREE, but registration is required and space is limited.
All sessions are limited to youth participants ages 13-18. All participants must be accompanied by a chaperone.
