*Announcement*


InPower Youth Summit at McNichols Civic Center Building will be postponed until 2021.


With these unprecedented times, it has been extremely challenging to know what the future holds. We are all having to be creative and re-imagine what our lives look like moving forward. With that being said, we would like to share both some good and sad news with you all. 

 

Our intention is to keep everyone as safe as we can, and that means we have made the decision to postpone the 2020 InPower Youth Summit as it was planned in person. Right now it doesn’t seem like large gatherings will be safe for our community and we will not do anything to jeopardize your safety. 

 

What can I do while I wait for next summer?

The good news is we have something else very exciting in store for you all! 


Introducing…the InPower Youth Summer Series!


Starting June 2020 we will be hosting online virtual workshops that will cover many of the same topics as we had planned for the in-person Youth Summit. 

 

Who Can Participate?

Young adults between the ages of 14-26 who want to dive into learning about adulthood! Invite your friends, classmates and neighbors who might also want to learn this information. 

*Parent Disclaimer: (We ask that this online learning be a cool creative space just for youth. Parents/guardians and care-takers, this is your time to encourage independent learning as a tool for transitioning into adulthood.)
