A day of learning, exchanging ideas, growth
This full day of learning, exchanging ideas, and growth is meant to create space for youth to critically explore social justice topics, inspire them to take action in their community and the world, equip them with the necessary tools, and connect them to community builders and peers leading ongoing efforts for community and global transformation.
Young people connecting with mentors, one another
This one-day conference builds on a grant-funded initiative based at the library since October 2017, made possible in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services. Learn more about the initiative designed to empower youth for college and career »
