Are you coming to our Youth Advocacy for Action Summit?

DCAYA is hosting our Youth Advocacy for Action Summit in just one week!

As we are in that lull between DC Council's Performance Oversight and Budget Hearings, we thought it would be a great opportunity to gather together.

We already have about 200 people coming to strategize and plan on March 29. Next week, we plan on tackling the many issues facing our youth, with a deep focus on action and collaboration. DCAYA is particularly excited with all the partners helping to guide breakout discussions focused on issue areas outside our own four.

This is a unique chance to brainstorm and join facilitated conversations with local and national experts on the issues our communities work on every day, and addressing how funding, legislation, and policy affect:

  • Girls and Women of Color
  • Boys and Men of Color
  • Youth Development/Afterschool
  • LGBTQ Youth
  • K-12 Education
  • Workforce and Disconnected Youth
  • Mental, Physical and Behavioral Health
  • Undocumented Children, Youth and Families
  • Housing and Homelessness

With the DC budget set to be released in just over two weeks, now is the time to come together to ensure we can serve our populations.

Registration ends this Friday, March 24, at noon. So if you haven't RSVP'ed yet, make sure to do so soon!
