Empowering young people to identify community issues, become problem solvers and take action to make a difference – that is the focus of the Points of Light Youth Summit at this year's Conference.
Fifty students (ages 11-18) from the Seattle/King County area will split into teams of five and participate in an interactive leadership experience, led by generationOn, the youth division of Points of Light. The students will research a community issue and develop a project plan to support a local nonprofit or school. Their experience will close with the opportunity to pitch their volunteer service project ideas to a panel of judges. Each team will have a chance to win up to $1,000 in grants for their sponsoring organization to implement the service project.
With the generous support of Target, grants will be awarded based on points received in the areas of relevance, creativity, community engagement, planned scope of work, defined outcome and sustainability.
