Growing Leaders Youth Summit
07/15/2015 - 07/31/2015
In response to the number of folks that were unable to attend the 2013 Summit because of the traveling distance involved, this year, we will be having FIVE regional Growing Leaders Youth Summits. It’s been nearly two years since the last Growing Leaders Youth Summit, and you’re going to love the ideas that have been cooking since then. The response to this event was overwhelming that this year, we are planning Regional Growing Leaders Youth Summits across the state in target areas around the Flathead, Helena, Livingston, Billings, and Havre. This is no small task, and we can’t do it alone. We need your help to make sure that this event is truly a success, and inspires young Hi-line residents to have an active role in the future of sustainable agriculture and local food systems.
Lend an ear (or more appropriately, an eye) about this opportunity for creating a truly transformative experience for high school students along the Hi-line. This is a request for your involvement in making the Growing Leaders Youth Summit a reality. The task is to put together a solid foundation of steering committee members, presenters, workshop leaders, and tour sites for an event in October 2015 that will build high school students’ sense of leadership and capacity to educate and organize their peers and communities around healthy eating and living.
This event is a collaborative effort between the Growing Leaders Youth Initiatives at the National Center for Appropriate Technology (NCAT) andOpportunity Link, Inc.
