Youth Opportunity Summit Mayor Murray is convening an all-day Youth Opportunity Summit, with a particular focus on improving outcomes for young men of color. This Summit is intended to launch a new conversation about how we can build on the good work of our community partners through better alignment of resources, better coordination across systems and agencies, and through lifting up the voices of young people to address longstanding disparities.

Youth Opportunity Summit

When: Saturday, April 11th, 2015, 8:30 AM – 4:30 PM

Where: Rainier Beach High School, 8815 S Seward Park Ave, Seattle, WA 98118

Seattle has committed to three related national initiatives:

President Obama’s My Brother’s Keeper, a community challenge to improve outcomes for young men of color;
Cities United, an effort by the National League of Cities to reduce black male homicide;
National Forum on Youth Violence Prevention, an initiative of the federal Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention that seeks to more effectively prevent youth and gang violence.

The Youth Opportunity Summit will also serve as a space for dialogue on how Seattle can connect to a larger national network of communities engaged in addressing disparities for young people of color, identify ways to improve on our local strategies, and ultimately take action to move the needle locally.
