Students Speak Youth Summit 2023
On April 18, 2023, 70 students from across the Commonwealth convened at Harvard Law School for the 2nd annual Students Speak Youth Summit, a full day of activities planned and led by youth. The action-packed agenda was focused on developing advocacy skills. The Summit featured keynote addresses aimed at inspiring youth-led advocacy and interactive workshops designed to explore a full range of tools for advocacy and self-discovery.
Participants in the Youth Summit had the opportunity to learn about multiple ways to raise their voices through podcasting, addressing microaggressions, and other advocacy strategies other youth are utilizing as they lead projects in their schools to, for example, address unfair attendance policies.
