Each January all Fellows who have successfully participated in the mentorship component of the program come together for a National Summit, four days of trainings, workshops, and networking. At the Summit, Fellows meet other young progressive leaders from all over the country and learn powerful strategies for creating sustainable change on campuses and in their communities. At the Summit, Fellows also draft their community project (the Blueprint for Social Justice) proposals.
Fellows are expected to attend the full National Summit over MLK Weekend in January. However, exceptions can be made on an individual basis if this presents an issue. YP4 will cover the cost of Fellows’ accommodations and most meals, and we will work with Fellows to ensure they are able to afford their travel to the Summit.
The 2015 summit is YP4’s 10th annual National Summit and will be the start of a yearlong celebration of YP4’s 10 years of creating change that lasts. It will occur at the Renaissance Capitol View Hotel in Arlington, VA (right outside of Washington, DC), and the Opening Awards Ceremony / Reception will be at the AFL-CIO in downtown Washington, DC on January 13th from 6:30-8:30PM. Please RSVP for the Summit reception today by buying your ticket today.
