This new, one-day event will provide leadership training for high school age youth to expand access to sex education statewide, and to increase young people’s knowledge of and access to sexual and reproductive health care. This event is for youth by youth. PPNNE’s Advocates for Sexual Knowledge (A.S.K.) are playing a significant role in planning and leading the Summit. A.S.K. Peer Educators are running workshops, giving input on how community organizations can support youth voice, and providing feedback on every aspect of the conference. The day will include rotating workshops, lunch, and a Youth Leadership Panel. Space is limited and youth attendance will be prioritized.

How can you get involved? 

Promote the Summit to Youth!

Download our flyer and hang it up, talk to students about the Summit, pay for their registration fee, and send out this announcement far and wide. Youth may register on their own or with a group. Feel free to email this page to your contacts!

Support Youth Attendance at the Summit!

Educators and youth-serving professionals are invited to bring groups of students to the Summit. If you are able, coordinate a group field trip; arrange for transportation to and from the Summit and pay for registration costs. Adult registration fees are waived for anyone bringing a group of 4 or more youth. To register a group, please contact [email protected] for the group registration form.

Apply to participate as a Community Partner Organization!

If you are a community organization who works to support sex education and are interested in participating at the Summit, we invite you to register to join us. The Summit will include an active tabling event in which participants learn in-depth about community organizations and the resources they provide. If your organization is interested in participating in this engaging tabling activity, please fill out and submit this form for review by 11/1/19. Space is limited and it may not be possible to accommodate everyone who is interested in participating.

Nominate a Youth Leader for the Panel!

Nominate a Youth Leader for the Panel!

If you know a high school age youth who has been active in leadership in their school and/or community who you think other young people could learn from, you can nominate them or encourage them to nominate themselves. We’re looking for a range of Youth Leadership for this exciting panel and hope to invite youth beyond PPNNE volunteers to share their experience. The nomination form is available at http://bit.ly/ypnomination.
