The Wyoming Youth Summit is a four-day conference, July 30-August 2, at Mallo Camp in Newcastle that will draw rising 7th to 12th graders from across the state for youth-driven workshops and outdoor activities designed to empower them to form a statewide peer-to-peer network committed to making positive change in their communities.
The Summit also offers the opportunity for youth to meet top state leaders and experts in traffic safety, substance abuse prevention, and mental health awareness who will offer training and resources and empower youth to share that information through their peer-to-peer networks.
Students Against Destructive Decisions (SADD) and the Wyoming Association of Sheriffs and Chiefs of Police (WASCOP) – There is No Debate campaign are partnering on hosting the conference as an important step in establishing and empowering a statewide coalition of youth leaders committed to encouraging their peers to make positive, healthy decisions.
The Wyoming Youth Summit will offer interactive training sessions led by youth and noted experts who will train youth on personal and professional prevention development skills. There will also be outdoor activities to allow youth to experience the beauty of our great state and build teamwork and friendships with their peers.
