The Your Voice Matters Youth Summit brings Cuyahoga County high school students together for a FREE day of learning and inspiration. This year’s summit emphasizes the importance of local elections and the U.S. Census, encouraging students to use their voice to be counted. Students will learn from elected officials and prominent community leaders.
Students will leave motivated to be active voters, leaders, thinkers, and change agents in their schools and communities. They will realize the power they have to become civically engaged and create an action plan to implement at their school.
