RE: APPLICATION OPEN FOR STUDENT LEADERS FOR YES! SUMMIT
Invitation to Delaware High School Students, Teachers & Administrators!
The YES! Working Group is thrilled to announce the third annual Youth Environmental Summit (YES!) for 2022. As in the first two summits, the event is largely planned by an engaged group of Delaware high school student leaders representing public, charter and private schools and from across the state.
The vision of the Delaware Youth Environmental Summit is to empower, educate, inform, and activate high school school students statewide regarding leadership in sustainability, zero waste principles, green school initiatives, climate change ramifications, activism, and advocacy.
The summit will include time for reflection, team building, keynote speakers, panel discussions, workshops with state legislators, advocacy training, and lots of dialogue. Key organizers include representatives from Plastic Free Delaware, Zero Waste First State, Odyssey Charter School, the Charter School of Wilmington, TeenSHARP, Green Building United, the Delaware Chapter of the Sierra Club, Delaware Interfaith Power & Light, Newark Charter School, Citizens Climate Lobby, and student leaders representing schools from across the state.
High School students interested in serving on the planning committee to be actively engaged in organizing the summit between September and February 2022 can apply now using this LINK.
The YES! student leadership application is due Friday, May 28th
Teachers & administrators, we need your help! Please consider alerting potential student leaders at your high school for this incredible opportunity to organize the 2022 YES! summit.
Please do not hesitate to reach out with any questions or suggestions.
