I AM ME Youth Summit

I AM ME Youth Summit is a FREE event that draws youth from all over the Greater Cincinnati area. The summit is aimed at empowering youth in our communities through building their confidence and resilience to embrace who they are. The day includes breakout sessions, swag bags, snacks and music.


While the Youth Summit is designed primarily for high school youth, it also includes a parent workshop. 

This year's theme, Freedom to Choose is about having the FREEDOM to be healthy physically, mentally, socially, and financially. 

The summit will take place on Saturday, February13th from 9:00am-12:00pm via Zoom.
