Final Healthy Youth Summit set for SaturdayMarch 11th, 2014 by Ethan Fowler
The community is encouraged to attend the third and final Healthy Youth Summit. It will be held from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday in the Bainbridge High Commons.
Co-facilitators will be Doug Nathan and Carolyn Milander, a 2012 BHS graduate.
“The day’s focus will be action: what action are you as an individual or an individual organization willing to take to make Bainbridge Island a healthier place for youth to thrive and grow,” Milander said.
National presenter Clay Roberts will lead the group in an inspirational talk titled “Take a Moment, Make a Difference.” Roberts efforts have been featured on NBC’s “Today” show and he has spoken at more than 700 events around the world.
Participants will later collaborate with other audience members who share their passion for self-selected themes that emerged from the first two summits, as they try to answer, “How can we turn our vision for healthy youth into practice?”
Bainbridge Youth Services, Raising Resilience, Rotary Club of Bainbridge Island and the Bainbridge Island School District are partnering for the summits.
