About the National Youth Summits

The National Youth Summit Series brings together some of the best and brightest students to focus on STEM, agriscience, healthy living, and photography. Designed for high school students (grades 9 – 12), the Summits provide opportunities to learn technical skills, participate in hands-on activities, workshops, and engage with nationally-recognized leaders.

Students typically attend in groups comprised of two to eight youth and are accompanied by an adult mentor/chaperone. School year 2019-2020 will be our seventh year of programs and the results have been amazing! In school year 2015-2016 our surveys show up to a 47% increase in the number of students who felt after attending a Summit they were more aware of areas of study they could pursue in college relating to their Summit subject matter. The National Youth Summit Series aims to teach lessons students can use for the betterment of their personal lives and communities.

Registration for all four Summits will open on Sunday, June 23, 2019.
