REGISTRATION CLOSED

How might youth meaningfully prepare for an unknowable future? What should our students be learning in order to become informed and active citizens of the 'real world?' How might we empower our students to be the leaders of today and tomorrow? Panelists will share their various perspectives from working in government, education, and more to inform and inspire our 700+ student audience.

This session is part of the Youth Summit, where students, educators, and civic leaders from across Virginia assemble to hear stories from young speakers and participate in high energy challenges that spark entrepreneurial problem solving. The Youth Summit is designed by local high school students who actively engage entrepreneurial skills through a multi-month design process facilitated by Tom Tom and the student-founded ReinventED Lab.
