What Youth Say

I really enjoyed how everyone was very welcoming, and it made me feel more comfortable being at my first in person SAVE Summit. I will do my best to bring that same type of positivity back to my community.

This was my first ever SAVE summit and I’m so glad I attended. I met so many people and it’s nice to see everyone who wants to make a difference come together.

What Adults Say

I really enjoyed the day I spent at the summit. Although I will take back information, the best thing about the Summit for me was seeing young people empowered and leading adults.
