The 84 Movement’s 11th annual Youth Power Summit was a giant success! On October 28, 2017, fifteen Chapters made up of 91 youth, 11 SLT, and 22 adults from across the state traveled to Worcester to participate in our fall kick-off event.
The Statewide Leadership Team members were superstars, leading a day full of excitement, wisdom, and empowerment! In our breakout sessions, we learned about raising awareness for tobacco prevention in our communities, and how to get our voices heard by decision makers among other information-driven trainings. As a reminder, the trainings given at the Youth Power Summit are still being offered throughout the year for our Chapters.
This year’s YPS was one of the best events to date and it’s all thanks to you! The day was filled with so much passion and excitement from youth and adult allies to dive deeper into the work of youth tobacco prevention. We look forward to taking that energy and excitement back to our communities across Massachusetts and into our work with The 84 this year. We were so glad to have the chance to connect with you all in person, and we really enjoyed seeing you connect with each other as well. That’s what building healthy communities is all about!
