Council Supports Youth Forum to Empower Future Generations


Striving to provide the tools and skills young people need as they work to curb violence happening in Columbus neighborhoods, President Pro Tem Michael Stinziano and Councilmember Jaiza Page will inject truth to power and speak at the 3rd Annual “Think Make Live Youth” Summit.

The Milo-Grogan Community Rec Center, 862 East 2nd Ave. will host the event on Saturday, August 25, 11am-4pm. 

Think Make Live Youth is a community nonprofit organization. Its mission is to provide innovative leadership and civic engagement to support opportunity youth. The theme of this year's summit is “Empowering Emerging Young Leaders and Creating Solutions to Stop the Violence in Our Communities.”

“This is a great opportunity for young people to discuss and develop solutions to the issues they are facing,” said Stinziano. “I am grateful to be a part of this summit, which empowers youth to be the driving force behind positive change.”

The opening session, hosted by young community leaders, includes special guest speakers and performances. All youth will then participate in two workshops on empowerment, and the adults will engage in a community session with a diverse panel of experts.

“We are working to support Columbus’ future leaders,” said Page. “I am excited to be a part of this event, which is helping foster creative problem solving skills and open dialogue at an early age.”

Throughout the summit, vendor tables with educational resources and employment opportunities will be available.
