The Library and Community Services Department successfully launched its first youth led “See Our Youth (SOY)” Summit on March 30th!  Over 100 high school youth came together to learn, connect and celebrate with their peers. The Summit consisted of educational workshops, youth entertainment, raffles and a resource fair. The goal of the Summit is to celebrate and empower young leadership in our City.
