Youth Rights Summit on October 20, 2017

Building on our work with Youth Ambassadors over the past six years and all the work around youth voice and youth engagement that programs are doing throughout the state, Vermont Afterschool would like to invite youth from expanded learning programs to a Youth Rights Summit on Friday, October 20, 2017.

The goal of the youth summit is to bring together youth ages 9-26 from across Vermont to create a Youth Declaration of Rights. We believe that knowing what is truly most pressing and most important to our young people will help all of us design and develop better and more effective programs and resources.

Event Details:
Chandler Music Hall
71 Main St. Randolph, VT
9 a.m. – 3 p.m.
Lunch is provided
Download the flyer to share (older youth version here and middle school youth version here)

There will be a separate schedule of activities for adults/parents/drivers. Limited travel stipends are available and please contact us if you have further questions. There will a bus traveling from Burlington too!
