2019 Youth EmPowerment Summit (YES!)
The Georgia Campaign for Adolescent Power & Potential (GCAPP) Youth Empowerment Summit is an exciting and informative display of resilience, creativity, and inspiration from — and for — young people (aged 14-24) across Georgia.
YES! brings together over 500 high school and college students to highlight and address emerging issues that are important to them and provides them a safe place for expression. YES! features young people who are experiencing personal growth and leading social change in their local communities, in many cases against all odds.
The youth-driven event, held in multiple regions across the state, includes: town hall youth panel discussions; interactive activities focused on overall adolescent wellness and healthy peer relationships; and breakout sessions facilitated by community leaders from the public and private sectors addressing the realities and emerging issues young people face.
