Super Power Youth Summit
April 13, 2019 — Charlotte, NC
Sandy Hook Promise is excited to continue the annual tradition of the SAVE Youth Summit for SAVE Promise Clubs across the country! This annual gathering of student leaders, advisors and advocates showcases successful practices in preventing violence and training participants in effective ways to make their schools and communities safer.
It is a time for youth voices to be heard in workshops, peer-to-peer presentations and activities that encourage, educate, engage and empower youth with violence prevention strategies. Please join us for motivating workshops, outstanding speakers, national awareness efforts and special presentations.
Mark Barden is the father of Daniel Barden, one of 20 first-graders murdered at Sandy Hook Elementary School along with six educators. Mark has dedicated himself to bringing people together to find sensible solutions that will prevent future tragedies and spare other families the pain of losing a child to gun violence. As Managing Director, Mark leads and manages the organization with Nicole Hockley. Mark focuses on policy and outreach efforts for Sandy Hook Promise (SHP) and frequently serves as a spokesperson for the organization.
Nicole Hockley is the mother of Dylan Hockley, who was killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School, and Managing Director of Sandy Hook Promise (SHP), a national gun violence prevention non-profit that delivers prevention programs to schools around the country, free of cost. Nicole joined SHP in January of 2013, just weeks after the tragedy. She has given multiple TEDx talks on gun safety and knowing the signs of someone who may be in crisis, or planning violence toward themselves or others, as well as dozens of speaking engagements and trainings at schools around the country. She works to ensure that no other parents will have to endure the pain of losing a child to preventable gun violence.
