About the Summit
The Youth Global Citizens Summit (YGCS) is hosted by Changing Destinations: Journey To Excellence, Inc. in collaboration with its partners. The event brings together youth from diverse racial, cultural, geographic, and economic backgrounds who are committed to making a positive difference in their communities.
Originally designed to be an in-person event, YGCS will be held virtually this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Youth will participate in five days of interactive activities, panel discussions, and youth presentations on solutions to real-world problems. The theme for the YGCS is Change Your World Youth Summit.
The aim of the summit is to empower youth through knowledge building, leadership development, collaboration, and global citizenship education.
We hope that during the summit, the participants will gain a clear perspective on career decisions, the role of technology in a changing world, and the importance of developing the necessary skills and knowledge to become global citizens.
Additionally, participants will be able to identify the United Nations 17 Sustainable Development Goals and learn how to take an active role in achieving the global goals. Youth and young adults will have fun deliberating, sharing ideas, engaging in interactive activities, and learning from experts who work with youth in various leadership roles.
Gifts and prizes will be announced during the event with a BIG celebration and a $500 prize on the final day of the Summit.
