Join representatives and student leaders from across the country for the 2015 Higher Education Leadership Summit hosted by Movement of Youth.

The Higher Education Leadership Summit is a rigorous and rewarding 3-day conference that will prepare you to lead a movement to disrupt the status quo and construct a safer, smarter, more socially conscious world. Through workshops, coaching, and hands-on training, you will learn how to structure effective program operations, ensure quality mentoring relationships, and lead powerful conversations about racial equity to impact your campus and local community at large.

Participation in the Summit will fully enable you to hit the ground running as you begin new and exciting adventures in the upcoming year. After the Summit, you will be better equipped to achieve goals at your local site and added clarity on how you can make your biggest positive impact through MOY.

We will feature speakers and mentors throughout the Summit.

Cost to attend: The fee of $50 includes Summit content, activities, and most meals.
