SNELLVILLE – The Snellville Youth Commission is hosting a Youth Summit next month.
The event, from 12-5 p.m. March 17, will take place at City Hall, 2342 Oak Road.
“The purpose of the event is to reach out to local high school-aged students to discuss a topic of concern,” said Snellville Youth Commission Director Christopher O’Donoghue. “This year's topic is ‘Impact.’ The summit will consist of multiple student-led sessions discussing and tackling the ways that they, as high school-aged students and young adults, can positively impact their communities.”
The event is free to all area high school-aged students. There will be snacks, games and a VISA gift card giveaway.
“The hope is to help these students understand that they can affect change and be leaders in their communities and they don't have to remain voiceless,” O’Donoghue said. “It's just a matter of using their skills and the tools available to them to make that change. We hope that the message will be better received, since by and large, the students will be the ones delivering this message at this summit.”
