SEEDS OF CHANGE SUMMIT.
In the spirit of the People of Color Environmental Leadership Summits in 1991 and 2002, high school youth and youth environmental justice leaders from regions across California attend Youth on Root's annual Seeds of Change Summit as delegates for their communities. The Summit's goals are to create an empowering space for college and high school-aged youth to collaborate and organize, network with notable speakers, gain exposure to higher education institutions and career pathways, and connect with other frontline youth from across California.
The Seeds of Change Summit is free to attend, and Youth on Root provides funding support to help cover the cost of travel and accommodations for grassroots environmental justice groups made up of youth from frontline communities.
Youth on Root regularly hosts remote events led by our staff and youth featuring frontline community members and notable frontline youth organizers who expand on our curriculum, facilitate workshops, and engage in leadership development.
