Our last in person summit was held in 2019 so we are thrilled to be hosting this in person event this year. In the 4 years that we have hosted this summit we have had over 400 participants in attendance. This summit will highlight and bring education/awareness to many topics that can be harmful to teens such as; opioid use and addiction, underage drinking, suicide, mental health/wellness, gang violence, healthy relationships, cyber safety and more. Because the summit is free for all participants the DA’s Office is actively seeking sponsorships to cover various costs associated with the summit. It is our sincere hope that you share in our vision to address these dangerous, existing trends among teens. Sponsorships from community partners such as yourself make it possible for us to continue to put on these free events for youth in our community. I have also attached a copy of the summit flyer.
