Youth & Community Leader Forum

Only when we join together with purpose, empathy, and courage, can we move our community forward. At this event, you will sit at the same table with others who are not like you in order to learn, grow and thrive as a change agent in today’s world. Students and adult community leaders will come together at this one-of-a-kind event to be inspired, break down barriers and take positive action in our community.

Featured Speaker: Idaho Senator Cherie Buckner-Webb
