THANK YOU TO ALL THE YOUTH AND COMMUNITY LEADERS WHO PARTICIPATED IN THE 2022 YOUTH LEADERSHIP SUMMIT ON MARCH 30, 2022! IT WAS A TREMENDOUS SUCCESS! 

The event brought together 22 leaders and 66 youth from the City of Thousand Oaks. The program included Leader Roundtables, Youth-Only Roundtables, and a Keynote Address. Topics discussed included: support and resources available to youth to deal with the impacts COVID, decrease stress, and improve mental health; issues of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion; how to enjoy social media and ways to deal with inappropriate or fake content; how schools can better meet the current and future needs of students; how to increase recycling and improve the environment; among many others. There were a lot of important conversations that took place and many positive outcomes. Here's what the Youth are saying:

“[The Summit] made me believe that our City has great leaders who really care about our community and want to make it better”

“[The Summit] helped me realize many problems in my community and how I can help."

“[The Summit] made me feel I have a voice"

"[The Summit] gave me faith in the process and change that our generation is making"

"The [keynote] speakers really inspired me and I really loved it"

"I loved [the keynote speaker's] message. It really resonated with me...Talking about the quote that you should not let the fear of being great make an enemy of being good. I loved that."

"I loved meeting other intelligent people who care and want to make a difference."

“I have a lot more hope about our future.”
