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… 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!Dylan Diemer

The first time I went to the Northcoast Youth Summit, I was afraid and unsure if I wanted to go.  That was four 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. I had so much fun that I went again and again. . This year I am helping organize it.  I am excited about origami, creative reuse, and painting workshops.-
The Northcoast Youth Summit is a really great 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. –Jonathan Archibold
