The 2020 Virginia Youth Education Summit (Y.E.S.)

posted Mar 4, 2020, 9:05 AM by Terri Morrison   [ updated Mar 11, 2020, 5:24 AM ]

The 2020 Virginia Youth Education Summit (Y.E.S.) will be held July 9th - 12th in downtown Richmond.  This program is for high school freshmen and sophomores who have a 3.0 GPA or higher and demonstrate leadership qualities. The purpose of our program is to engage students into learning about our history, government and how to be a better and active citizen. 

The Summit includes a tour of the Capitol and historical sites.  The students will participate in debates and speeches about our Constitutional Rights.  At the end of the Summit, some scholarships are awarded to students and one student is selected, as the Virginia representative, to attend the National YES in Washington, DC next year.  

 

Attached is an article about last year’s Summit and the 2020 application is available below.
