The 14th Annual Northcoast Youth Summit (NYS) is sponsored by the University of California 4-H program, Friday Night Live, the Humboldt County Office of Education (HCOE), and College of the Redwoods. “Building Bridges” is this year’s theme. Youth (7th-12th grade) choose from over 30 different workshops such as Navigating College, Presenting with Confidence, Self Defense, Know Your Rights, Native Plants, Chess Tactics and CPR certification.
Attendees will hear the voices of two keynote speakers: one of whom is Jermaine Brubaker from Wild Rivers Community Foundation working with the Redwood Voice and coordinating our Service Learning Project and the other is Elizabeth Smith from the Boys and Girls Club. NYS goals are increasing youth leadership development, skill building, networking and awareness of local career opportunities.
Wondering if this event would be fun? Here’s what Dylan Diemer wrote about his experience:
The North Coast Youth Summit is an amazing opportunity! I have had the chance to learn about careers as well as grow as a person. From college workshops to learning about and playing with puppies that are becoming seeing-eye dogs, the Youth Summit has provided me with an amazing chance to enjoy learning. For those considering it, I would strongly recommend coming. The Youth Summit has inspiring keynote speakers and fun activities too!
Still unsure? Here’s what Jonathan Archibold wrote about his experience:
The first time I went to the Northcoast Youth Summit, I was afraid and unsure if I wanted to go. That was three years ago. I only knew one person when I went for the first time. We entered the theater and heard a story from one of the guest speakers, It was inspiring and I haven’t forgotten the story he told. After that I met new people, and learned cool things through the workshops. One of the biggest things I took away from the summit was learning where things were on the campus. This was helpful because the first year I went to the summit was the year before I attended Academy of the Redwoods. I also really enjoyed the coding workshop. I had so much fun that I went again and took a friend.
This year I am excited about the raptor workshop with live birds, capoeira, and martial arts.
The Northcoast Youth Summit is a really opportunity for any person to learn a thing or two, meet some people around the Humboldt, Mendocino,Del Norte & Trinity counties and hear inspiring stories from people who have achieved their dreams.
