The California Coalition for Youth's Youth Empowerment Summit (YES) 2018 aims to inspire youth, youth advocates, and staff of youth-serving organizations to form their own strategies to create change and improve the lives of California’s disconnected, runaway and homeless youth.

YES is the chance to come to California’s State Capitol to share ideas, energy, and experiences with transition-age youth, youth-serving programs and youth advocates from across the state.
On the first day of the conference, attendees can expect a full program of exciting workshops being held between the Sacramento Convention Center and the California Endowment Building. This format allows attendees to move freely and really get a sense of what Sacramento has to offer (no more stuffy hotel conference rooms!) Featuring a provided lunch and dinner from one of Sacramento’s premier eateries, Station 16!

On Day 2, Attendees will be split into two tracks: Advocacy and Service. The Advocacy track is made up of a limited number of Youth-Led teams of 5 where they’ll go and meet with their legislatures and share their stories! The Service track will be made up of those interested in doing a service project with the California Coalition for Youth and one of our community partners in Sacramento!

Who Should Attend?
• Transition Age Youth (ages 16-24)
• Street Outreach Workers
• Shelter Staff
• Executive Directors & CEOs
• Transitional Living Program Staff
• Youth Mentors
• Anyone Passionate About Empowering and Improving the Lives of Youth!
