Eagle Rock Supports Santa Fe Youth Summit

Youth will gather at the Chavez Community Center on Tuesday, October 27 to discuss a range of issues and goals for the Santa Fe Community and the services provided to young people identified in the 2015 Teen Survey.   The Teen survey was commissioned by the City of Santa Fe Children and Youth Commission and conducted by the Story of Place Institute.  The Youth Summit is an extension of the Mayor’s efforts to engage young people, promote overall well being and extend opportunities to kids growing up in Santa Fe.   Topics to be discussed range from financial distress for students and families to community activities for youth, bullying, mentorship options, healthy food in schools, and immigrant youth.  The summit is being led by youth leaders who have gone through a series of facilitator trainings with the Professional Development Center at Eagle Rock, a national leader in youth advocacy and programs particularly in re-engagement of disconnected youth.   The outcomes from the Youth Summit will be presented at the Opportunity Santa Fe Community Summit on November 18.
