“All advocacy is, at its core, an exercise in empathy.” – Samantha Power
About the Summit
As a youth worker, you know the value of empathy and the life-changing difference your care and concern make in the lives of the young people you serve. Youth work is social justice work and social justice needs us to be active advocates for this cause.
The virtual Youth Intervention Summit is an event designed to amp up your advocacy on behalf of young people. By joining together at the Youth Intervention Summit we create a movement to disrupt the status quo and bring about systemic change.
We (all of us) simply cannot rest until Youth Intervention is wholeheartedly embraced and fully funded. You are the key. You intimately understand your community needs and MN state legislators need to learn from you to inform their policy and funding decisions regarding our young people.
Young people need all youth workers to become vocal, active, civic-minded advocates for better policies and adequate funding for youth-serving programs. Your participation in the virtual Youth Intervention Summit is vital to young people.
Join us – together we have the power to ensure all young people have equitable opportunities in life. See you at the Summit! Your friends at YIPA
