The Summit for Youth and Families has developed action plans to address graduation rate, teen pregnancy, substance use/abuse, sexual and domestic violence, gangs, child abuse and neglect, childhood obesity, mentoring, transition/workforce, development and media influence. This forum will provide a networking opportunity among businesses, schools, social service providers, faith-based, governmental and interested community members committed to the betterment of youth.
