Listen Learn Lead Registration

The Listen Learn Lead Summit was designed to provide middle and high students a powerful opportunity to listen and build community, learn about issues critical to their well-being, and lead as change agents for healthier and more equitable communities.  The Summit is anchored in the idea of listening to us, learning from us through our individual and collective experiences, and allowing us to lead as the changemakers of our future.  It will empower participants to spark connections, share passion, and exchange ideas with a goal towards designing solutions that advance safe and healthy schools and communities. 
 
The Listen Learn Lead Summit has been carefully curated to provide engaging workshops focused on issues affecting students daily – mental and physical health and well-being, substance use, equity and justice, and healthy relationships.  Please complete the registration form below to help us understand your preferred workshops and lunch options.  We are excited to have you attend the inaugural Listen Learn Lead Summit on March 9, 2024, at George Mason University’s Mason Square.
