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 two key-note speakers, live performance, hype sessions, networking opportunities & panel discussion that will all 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.
Hope you all, your families and colleagues are staying safe and are well during this most trying time in the history of the United States. COVID-19 has suddenly changed the way we live, learn and work. Businesses, large and small, have had to grapple with unprecedented challenges, including orders to close or significantly curtail operations in order to stem the transmission of the coronavirus.
Unfortunately, we had to cancel our 3rd Annual Youth Summit this year scheduled on Monday, October 26, 2020 and we luckily have rescheduled it for Monday, October 25, 2021- same time and place (8am-1:30pm at Albany Capital Center).
