Contra Costa County Youth Summit
It unites sixth through twelfth grade youth with local dignitaries, mentors and community leaders for an incredible day complete with exploration, education, and entertainment. The event will be a community effort to build healthy attributes such as self esteem, honesty, and integrity. Our goal is to assist our students in constructing the foundation they need to be successful by equipping them with experiences that will enhance their personal and social standards. The interactive workshops provided at the Summit will offer life skills, assist with career development and provide a venue for appropriate activities that reduce the risk of undesirable behavior.
These summits are a collaborative community effort and there are a multitude of opportunities available for you/your agency to be involved.
The morning track introduces a number of workshops that evoke self awareness, analysis and acceptance in addition to hobbies or activities that are a positive utilization of time. Some previous summits have included workshops that addressed time/money management, manifestation of a positive attitude, discussions regarding internet usage, substance abuse, depression, dating, violence, gangs, healthy choices and healthy boundaries. We have also offered workshops with instruction on CPR, photography, videography, radio personalities, personal hygiene and more.
The afternoon track includes workshops with a physical component- dancing, basketball, track, martial arts zumba and various types of athletically based activities. Lunch time is teaming with entertainment, opportunities to receive an air brush tattoo or manicure, community information and free food.

If you would like to present a workshop, volunteer your time, donate a raffle item, assist with advertisement and promotional matters, provide an activity during the lunch hour or if your agency would like an information table during lunchtime.
It does in fact take a village to provide opportunities for our youth. Your consideration and time is deeply appreciated. Together we can make a difference.
