2014 National PTA Youth Leadership Summit
The 2014 Youth Leadership Summit will be held June 19-22 in conjunction with the National PTA Annual Convention in Austin, Texas.
This interactive leadership and advocacy training will prepare students to become active and engaged PTSA leaders in their schools. Students will hone their skills through a series of keynote speakers, workshops, and group projects. Participants will also develop leadership goals and strategies to achieve these goals. Support via ongoing webinar trainings and online forums will continue throughout the school year to help ensure students' success with their PTSAs.
Students can apply for a scholarship to attend the Youth Leadership Summit. Review the sample application in order to prepare answers in advance. The deadline is April 30.
Who can attend?
- a student who will be enrolled in high school during the 2014-2015 school year
- a student with solid leadership and communication skills
- a student willing to accept new challenges
- a student who is interested in making positive changes in their school with the leverage of PTSA
Students, including those not affiliated with PTA or PTSA, can also register. All students must be accompanied by a parent/guardian or adult chaperone who will be responsible for the student while at the Youth Summit.
