The event will take place from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. on Thursday, March 15 at The Summit, 1025 W. Rudisill Blvd. and is sponsored by Mayor Tom Henry’s Youth Engagement Council and Canterbury School.

“This is a tremendous opportunity for young people to grow and learn while discussing important topics designed to bring our community together,” said Mayor Henry. “I appreciate the efforts being led by my youth engagement council and Canterbury School. It’s vital that we listen to and value our future leaders.”
