It's your future, invest in it! The more you learn, the more you earn. The 11th Annual Central Virginia Youth Leadership Summit is happening February 8 at the Greater Richmond Convention Center. You'll get motivated, inspired and learn valuable tools to earn more.
Our mission is to allow youth an opportunity to understand themselves, others and the career and education opportunities available to them. We strive to do this through influential speakers that cover not only financial literary, education, and employment topics but social and life skills as well.
Motivate. Educate. Inspire.
The Central Virginia Youth Leadership Summit (YLS) is designed to motivate and encourage youth in establishing a knowledgeable voice in making decision about their future; as well as to get them engaged in furthering their education and career path by helping to identify and remove some of the challenges they, their peers and families face.
