Youth Activist Summit
July 13, 2019 @ 9:30 am - 3:00 pm
An event for activists to connect and empower themselves.
Hosted By: Spark Of Life Collective
Partnered By: This Is Zero Hour
The Youth Activist Summit: trainings, workshops, speakers, and performers!
Many youth want to take action to positively impact the world and make changes in terms of climate change, civil rights, and much more. This summit is designed to give them the tools to speak and act towards these policies and injustices. Contact Us For More Information or with any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org
SPEAKER + VENDOR LIST COMING SOON
What Ages Are Invited?: Although this event is aimed at ages 25 and under, we encourage people of all ages to attend and participate!
How Much Are Tickets?: FREE! We are hosting this event on a completely donated and volunteer basis. Any fees going towards this event are completely out of pocket. Being said, tickets should cost $25 – $50 each, so we would definitely appreciate any donations to pay back these costs and the costs of future events- but there is no ticket price.
This Is A “Sister” Event?: This Is Zero Hour is a climate change organization who is hosting the big “Youth Climate Summit” event happening in Miami from July 12th – 14th. Spark Of Life Collective is partnering with them to host the single day all day event in Las Vegas, NV. What is the difference? Aside from also incorporating LGBTQ+ groups and women’s rights groups, we have multiple panels.
Why Do You Need My Email?: Because this event aims to be as environmentally sustainable as possible, we are not printing and handing out programs, brochures, or any of that stuff that you’d normally find at summits and conferences. However, we still want all of this stuff to be readily available to you! Every person who shows up will receive an email containing all of the information you need to know about the Youth Activist Summit, our speakers, performers, vendors, things you can do to make an impact, and so much more!
We prefer receiving your email in advance, but will request it upon walking into the event and have a technology manager on standby to submit any emails to those who may not have submitted it in advance.
