PEAK’s Youth Leadership Team is excited to host the Youth Leadership Summit and introduce their 2021 – 2022 theme, Take Up Space.

The Leadership Summit team at PEAK wants to empower you to live your best life.  We want you to BECOME familiar with who you are and what you are capable of, to DISCOVER your goals and passions and learn how to CONNECT and communicate with the world around you. You are enough, you have what it takes and your time is now!

The Youth Leadership Summit:

  • Is for young adults, ages 15-26 with varying abilities/disabilities (self-advocates.)
  • Provides participants with a safe space to use thier voice
  • Is designed for participants to experience as independently as possible.

The Details:

  • Registration Rate: $60 
  • Included for each participant with registration is a Certificate of Completion for his or her resumes.
  • Registration for the Youth Summit includes a full pass to main conference activities.

 NOTE: While the Youth Leadership Summit is being universally designed to accommodate diverse styles of learning and communication, PEAK recognizes that some youth may require additional individual supports to ensure their full participation. Due to very limited resources, PEAK may not be able to provide the individual supports required but is willing to explore options with youth and families, however, parents/guardians do not participate in the session.

Outcomes 

Participants of the 2022 Youth Leadership Summit will:

  • Become knowledgeable about their individual strengths, interest and needs
  • Discover tools and tips to begin their journey to independence in whatever capacity that is for them
  • Learn to connect and engage with their community
