Teen Summit 2017
October 16, 2017
With presenting partner: Boys & Girls Clubs of Lake and Sumter Counties
Building on the success of the 2016 Teen Summit, we plan to grow this all day personal development conference. The Teen Summit offers attendees the opportunity to try new things and learn new skills in a fun and entertaining day. Please click the link below for a description and photos of Teen Summit 2016.
Summer Teen Popups
In partnership with local businesses and sponsored by the United Way of Lake and Sumter Counties, we organized small group meetups in the Historic Downtown and Waterfront Park areas to connect Teens with social, hobby and recreational interests. These Popups were a low cost / low commitment opportunity to try a new activity or hobby.
