Summits provide the training and resources to galvanize school districts and their communities to address the barriers to learning, and advance positive children and youth development.

A district-based Summit allows the local schools to choose the issues unique to their community of schools they wish to address in workshops / training sessions. The district also is part of the decision-making process to select the speakers for their Summit. NCYI then works out the details!

Here are some of the Summits we have done:

Product Showcases

Not only is NCYI a event manager. We also are a publisher, working with authors who have lived and put into practice the very things your educators deal with each day. Product showcases provide the tools to empower counselors and  other student support professionals to enhance student success in school, and in life. These showcases allow these professionals the opportunity to personally review the resources before securing them, thus increasing the likelihood of their active use at the school building level.
