4/25 Bainbridge Healthy Youth Summit

Success: Changing the Story?

Teens, parents of kids of any age, educators, grandparents, and all Bainbridge adults are invited to join us for the fourth Bainbridge Healthy Youth Summit on April 25 at 9 a.m.

Imagine an island where adults and teens take time out of their busy lives to learn from one another and cultivate the conditions that help young people thrive…

With your help, Bainbridge can be that island!

The theme of this year’s summit, “Success: Changing the Story?” emerged from conversations between youth and adults at previous summits.  What stories need to change? How do we change individual and collective stories? How do edited stories change lives?

At the upcoming summit, we’ll listen to how teens think and feel about success and how “success stories” help and hinder them as they make their ways through childhood and adolescence. We’ll reflect on the stories that brought meaning and purpose to our own lives and apply our experiences to how we foster the positive development of island youth.

A special breakfast will be served for teens at 9:00 AM, just before the event starts at 9:30 AM. Teens receive 5 community service hours for their participation and will be entered into a raffle for great giveaways. So, if you can, please bring a teen with you!!

We are pleased to have a father-daughter facilitation team. Doug Nathan, who ably facilitated last year’s summits and his daughter Maya, a sophomore at Bainbridge High School, will lead our discussions.
