Welcome!We appreciate your voice, opinion, passion, understanding, and energy. Welcome to the “TABLES to create CHANGE”WE are here to co-create strategies to meaningfully connect with students 15-24, enlisting them to become change agents and problem solvers. This session will be interactive and student led. Our goal is for participants to leave the session with a plan to engage thousands of young people in co-creating a vision for future and steps to achieve the dream. No meaningful change happens without young people being involved. To find solutions to the many challenges facing our planet, communities, and individuals….all voices are needed at the table.
The goal of this session is to develop strategies for increasing numbers of youth to become change agents in their communities; tackling the questions that matter.
