As a community stakeholder, you understand the pressing need to support the growth and development of our next generations of leaders. Amid the COVID-19 Pandemic, many educators said COVID-19 and/or the shift to remote learning has caused their student's emotional distress and created problems with attendance. Administrators and teachers cite that an increased number of students have "given up" on school and show signs of depression, loneliness, and anxiety. Teachers also find that student confidence has plummeted, and it is easier for them to disengage from learning. Throughout the last two years, many students have dealt with family losses and are fearful of COVID-19 and social interactions.

The Emerging Leaders Youth Program seeks to be a solution to help underserve students navigate today’s complex world. Through our programming students will gain soft skills needed for the challenges and changes they are facing during this time as well as the ability to enhance the confidence and self-awareness they need to have a sense of belonging in society. 

To be able to provide the resources, expertise, and help these students need throughout the year, we are organizing the Emerging Leaders Student Summit to raise funds.

On Saturday, April 30th, 2022, the Emerging Leaders Student Summit will bring together underserved high school students, youth leaders, community stakeholders, and parents. This summit is designed to be a rigorous and thought-provoking leadership training day. The purpose of the Emerging Leaders Student Summit is to engage selected students in personal growth and leadership development activities that are not only proven to increase students’ leadership capability but also enhance students’ confidence and self-awareness.

This event and program will be no charge for students, therefore, community support is needed. When you support this summit, you choose to support the personal, professional, and educational growth of the future leaders of our community. As a result, you will be part of the enhancement of a culture of leadership among our next generation within Metro Atlanta and beyond.
