Teens have a hard enough time navigating life, dealing with everything from low self-esteem to online bullying and drugs, as well as real and perceived stigma and shame for any mistakes of their past.
The one-day Above the Influence: Youth Summit will give these teens a chance to unleash the positive influencer within themselves and redefine their futures this Friday at DeVos Place.
The summit will have a high-energy, DJ-spinning celebration to a day of uplifting, moving, positive, peer-to-peer “get real” conversations with a one-of-a-kind gathering of urban, suburban and rural 9th through 12th graders from nearly 60 schools spanning 8 counties.
The summit will feature Keynote Speaker, Dr. Jermone Glenn. Dr. Glenn is a community cultivator, creative coach, and cross-cultural communicator.
