About This Resource
This resource is part of Search Institute’s national Healthy Communities • Healthy Youth (HC• HY) initiative, which seeks to motivate and equip communities across the country to build assets for youth. Across this great nation people are trying to find ways to give young people an authentic voice and meaningful roles in their community. More and more, they are using youth-led Youth Summits as a tool to make this happen. This planning guide represents our best learning about how to develop and hold an effective Youth Summit, based on the experience of adults and young people from across the country.
