Discover a new way of living!
Join the over 500 people who come from diverse sectors of our community for the eighth Carry the Vision Community Nonviolence Conference on September 29, 2012.
Youth Leadership Summit
Carry the Vision is partnering with YES! for Schools to provide practical strategies to inspire high school aged young people to become empowered nonviolent leaders in their community.
Our youth are our future! We can support them in becoming empowered to stand up for compassion, wisdom and and to do what is right. Each young person is a potential leader.
The summit will engage the young people in experiential activities that re-awaken the values of commitment, responsibility, creativity and team work — qualities inherent in an empowered nonviolent leader.
We request that all youth pre-register to allow our summit leaders to plan appropriately.
