Sponsor Underserved Youth Leaders to join Sustainability Summit

The Big Picture

Goal: $100,000
  $0 raised
Our weeklong Youth Leadership Summit for Sustainable Development inspires, educates, and empowers underserved young people (ages 16-19) to envision their personal, professional, community and planetary goals. The Summit opens doors and expands horizons. Each Summit starts with a Sustainability Tour, during which youth experience first-hand the fragility of our planet. Emerging Leaders teach youth how to become action-oriented and solutions-based. Youth design Sustainability Projects for their communities. They put their dreams into action with five-year plans. They learn how to troubleshoot challenges, make presentations and develop strategies to engage others. They develop videos to inspire others. They create online Sustainability Toolkits. They discover how they can help build a local green workforce. They are empowered to become representatives of their communities and lightning rods for positive change, creating a multiplier effect to build a new generation of leaders.

Impact of Your Donation

Donations will fund the Summit cost for one youth participant. The funds will pay for the youth to travel to and participate in the Summit. Participants are underprivileged young people of promise nominated to represent their communities. The weeklong Summit will empower them to become sustainability leaders. Sponsors underwrite all other costs for the Summit, including all conference fees, lodging, meals, outdoor activities/Sustainability Tour, materials as well as travel expenses.
