Annual Bayview Youth Summit
Since 2012, BMAGIC and our community partners have worked to support an annual youth driven and youth led Summit. Over the course of 14 week planning process from partnering organizations come together to plan a youth summit to address an identified trend or community issue. The Summit is designed to connect youth ages 13-18 representing the diverse backgrounds of BVHP to have open, honest and supported dialogue. They also feel empowered to respond the pressures stemming from peers, family, school and other outside influences. Past summit themes included trauma, violence prevention, sustainability and consist of workshops, lunch and entertainment. This year’s Summit will be held on Saturday, April 29th, 2018 at College Track (4301 3rd Street).
