The Youth Civic Engagement Summit engages local youth to become agents of change in their communities. The Summit is held in October as a way to excite and motivate students at the beginning of the school year to engage in service throughout the year.

The event includes a keynote address as well as an activity that reinforces the keynote address. Carlos Ojeda Jr., president and CEO of CoolSpeak, LLC has been the keynote speaker on multiple occasions. His presentation focused on the importance of using one’s voice in creating change.
