Nazareth College Hosts Third Annual Rochester Teen Summit

Published April 26, 2017

The Rochester Teen Summit, a series of "TED-Talk"-style presentations honoring the perspective of teens and young adults, will be held on Saturday, April 29, 2017 from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. (9 a.m. sign-in) in the Shults Center at Nazareth College, located at 4245 East Avenue, Rochester, NY 14618. This event is free and open to the public.

The summit will feature a series of presentations, each 10 to 15 minutes, by students from Nazareth College, West Irondequoit High School, East's Big Picture School, Greece Athena, Roc Kids Connect, Zoo Teens, and LifePrep@Naz. The talks will cover topics such as racism, immigration, poverty, students with disabilities, connecting suburban and urban students, and urban poetry.

"The talks will provide insight on social justice issues that impact our community, all from the perspective of young people," says Brian Bailey, summit organizer and associate professor of adolescent education at Nazareth. "They will then take these issues one step further by introducing potential solutions so that we, as a community, can make a change for the better."
