Since 2008 Free The Children’s Youth Summits have brought young people together for a day of social justice learning and leadership building. This year we are excited to build on that history and move you from interest to action. We want you to be a part of Free The Children’s 2013 Youth Summit. This year, we are hosting the summit on April 6 (Toronto), April 20 (Washington), May 4 (Washington), May 11 (UK), June 8 (Washington). At this year’s Youth Summit through a series of workshops we will start to breakdown the issues that we care about, and lay the foundation for how we will take action.
This year’s 2013 Youth Summit will help us to understand the issues, build our plan of action, and realize our potential. Let’s get together to explore the concepts of exploitation, poverty, and what it means to be silenced. Then, take our next steps towards action and develop the leader in you.
Through a series of brand new, interactive workshops and activities, you will be equipped with the understanding of how to create social change in your local and global communities. This year we are focusing on how to use Free The Children’s We are Silent campaign to explore the issues and stand up for those without a voice. At the Youth Summit, we will have the chance to connect and share our experiences and interests. We will also have the opportunity to hear inspirational speeches and personal stories from amazing Free The Children and Me to We speakers.
We believe that we are the first generation that can truly end the worst forms of poverty, and embrace we thinking and we acting. And there’s no time to waste: every single day we have the opportunity to make this world a better place. And everyone has a role to play.
At the Youth Summit, you will:
- Connect and create a community of like-minded young people
- Build connections with Free The Children and Me to We staff
- Learn more about social justice issues and why your voice matters
- Listen to amazing motivational speeches by our very own Free The Children and Me to We speakers!
- Action plan with other inspired youth to lead the social movements of our time!

“I would like to extend my gratitude for all of the efforts that were put into Saturday’s Youth Summit. It was absolutely amazing and I would just like to say a big thanks to everyone at Free The Children. I learned a ton of things and returning to school this week, I felt inspired and couldn’t help but share my experience with many other students at my school.”
“I wanted to thank you SO much for having me as a Summit participate last Saturday. I learned so many new things and I met some incredible people that I am staying in close contact with—and the surprise guest was INCREDIBLE! I had a wonderful day and I will continue to apply everything that I learned everyday!”
