Regional Youth Summits

The Winter Institute has committed itself to broadening its youth work to include year-round programing that complements its Summer Youth Institute, a nine-day leadership and community building experience framed through Civil Rights. One of the new year-round programs that the Institute’s youth engagement team has created is a series of regional youth summits. Each summit will focus on a specific region of the state and address the needs and interests of the young people who live in those communities. In addition to allowing SYI alums to reconnect and recharge, the regional summits will also allow students who have not had the opportunity to attend SYI to be apart of the experience.

Central Mississippi Youth Summit

The Central MS Youth Summit was the first in a series of regional youth summits hosted by the Institute’s youth engagement team. Held at the Cabot Lodge Millsaps in Jackson, MS in early November, a passionate group of high school students from the greater central MS/ Jackson area came together to address the importance of access to quality education and their roles as educational activists. They were joined by an esteemed group of academics, activists, and policy makers. Many thanks to our fantastic students, panelists, and staff/interns! Be on the lookout for the next regional youth summit in early 2014!
