5TH Annual I AM ME Youth Summit
The I AM ME Youth Summit is the annual citywide youth summit presented by Guiding Light Mentoring. It is a FREE day of resources that include but are not limited to; student and parent workshops, swag bags, food, and music just to name a few to, "Empower All to Achieve Their Fullest Potential.” This summit is for ALL youth in grades 7th-12th and parents throughout the Greater Cincinnati area.
The I AM ME Youth Summit will take place on Saturday, February 11th from 10:00AM-2:30PM (Doors open at 9:00AM) at Chase Elementary School located at 4151 Turrill Street, Cincinnati, Ohio 45223.
Since our I AM ME Youth Summit launched in 2018, over 300 youth and parents have participated and learned skills of workforce development, leadership skills, and financial literacy to name a few. With the rise of gun violence in our community, Guiding Light Mentoring will host a citywide youth summit to address not only the gun violence in our community, but to give youth an opportunity to voice their concerns, address why they engage in criminal and illegal behavior, inform adults of what resources they would like to have in the community, and explain what barriers are preventing them from accessing free and paid services in the community.
