We are thrilled to be in Menlo Park, CA for the 2018 Youth Activation Summit, a collaboration between PeerForward and Facebook Education. Envisioned by student leaders, the Youth Activation Summit aims to accelerate the impact of young people creating school and community solutions in partnership with schools. The Summit is bringing together a diverse community of stakeholders from across the country - award-winning youth leaders, school and district innovators, nonprofit leaders, researchers, and funders - to design plans and cultivate a network to shift the narrative from "student need help" to "students create solutions"

We are proud to have supported and partnered with PeerForward and Facebook Education on this amazing initiative and are excited to be at Facebook HQ to engage with these amazing young leaders.
