Teen Summit Explores Great Futures

Eight of our teens joined their counterparts from other Boys & Girls Clubs around Los Angeles County for an all-day Teen Summit at UCLA on November 22. Organized by the Boys & Girls Clubs Los Angeles County Alliance and presented by Toyota, the event’s goal was to empower and inspire teens and help them to make positive choices at a pivotal time in their lives. More than 1,000 teens attended the summit, where they were able to talk to professionals in various fields and careers and enjoy a live concert. The summit also featured breakout sessions exploring issues facing teens. Of course lunch and giveaways were part of the fun with one of our members winning an Xbox gaming system.
