Youth Summit

Tuesday, June 20, 2017 - 3:00 to 5:30 p.m.

With the generous support of Target, youth in and around the Seattle metropolitan area will be invited to complete interactive and engaging workshops to develop a service project that positively impacts their community. The Youth Summit will feature 10 teams of young people that brainstorm ways to address a social issue important to them, develop a strong plan of action and pitch their idea to a panel of judges for a chance to win $250-$1,000 grants to implement their project. These grants will be awarded based on points received in the areas of relevance, creativity, community engagement, planned scope of work, defined outcome and sustainability.

What Others Are Saying

This is one of the few events where all members of the social good sector are in attendance. With business, nonprofit and public sectors attending, we can dig deeper and have cross-sector conversations.

The conference proved to be one of the most engaging and exciting professional gatherings of like-minded people I've ever attended. Although the topics, content, and presentations all appropriately centered around volunteering and service in some way, the sheer range of them was simply astounding.
