Teen Summit is a biennial week-long Youth Leadership event that brings Clubhouse youth together from each of the 100 Clubhouses internationally. Youth leaders explore issues relevant to them and propose solutions through the creative use of innovative, high-end technologies. Teen Summit 2018 will take place July 31-August 5 at Boston University, featuring a college and career fair, collaborative cross-cultural activities, and many other opportunities for educational, career, and personal growth. The theme of this year's Summit is "Stand Up, Speak Out, Change The World!"
- build technological skills and awareness
- strengthen leadership and teamwork skills
- foster a sense of positive social action
- increase a sense of self-efficacy
"What I liked best about Teen Summit was meeting different people and learning about their cultures. It's amazing how diversity is shown not only through art pieces and technology, but also in the human race. It's unbelievable seeing how unique we all are as individuals."Teen Summit participant
