The Northeastern Community Action Partnership (NECAP) is hosting another FREE Youth Summit! We will have more details about the event in the next few months or so but will have key-note speakers that will focus on substance abuse, addiction & recovery, mental health advocacy, and the importance of making healthy choices.
All middle and high schools are encouraged to send a team of students (student leaders and/or at risk populations), counselor(s) and/or administrators to the summit. All students can benefit from this coming together event to strengthen sense of belonging in community, resiliency, and coping strategies!
We will have lunch for our guests, interactive networking sessions, resource tables, energizers, performances & more!
Summit is held at the Albany Capital Center in Albany, NY and registration opens day of at 8:00am and closing ceremony is at 1:30-2pm.
NECAP’s Youth Summit’s goal is to engage and empower youth in the Capital District with resources and support services. We want to empower our audience and reassure them that they are not alone in the struggles of growing up in a society that is faced with peer pressure, substance use and abuse, as well as providing an impactful message in regards to resiliency and who they can turn to for support services.
