The local Council for Youth Development (CYD) will be once again hosting their Annual Youth Empowerment Summit. St. Bartholomew 7th & 8th Grade students will attend the Nathan Harmon speaking event with Northside Middle School on September 17th.
Nathan is a motivational speaker who has overcome addiction and self-harm. His message of “Your Life Speaks,” empowers youth to value life, overcome obstacles, and build a community where everyone feels they belong. Nathan will also address Positive Identity, a category in the Search Institute’s Developmental Assets framework. Research has found children and teens who have high levels of these assets have fewer risky behaviors and are much more likely to exhibit positive values and success in school. Want to hear more from Nathan? Join us Thursday evening, Sep. 19th, at The Commons for Nathan’s keynote address. Doors open at 6:00pm for this free public event.
