Just Say Something Reaches Milestone, Hosts 12th Annual Youth Summit

Greenville, SC – Just Say Something, in conjunction with Beyond Differences, Inc., will hold its 12th Annual Youth Summit at Bob Jones University Student Center on Thursday-Friday, July 18-19, 2019. The summit will begin at 9:00AM and will end at 4:00PM each day. Youth between the ages of 13 and 17 will spend two days engaging in conversation and in-depth dialogue regarding various topics relevant to the Greenville community. The youth summit is the only summit in the Upstate that seeks a cross-cultural selection of youth of every race, background, and ethnicity.

“Since this is our 12th year hosting the Youth Summit, we thought “Raising the Bar” would be an appropriate theme,” said Marty Durant, Youth Services Director of Just Say Something. “Not only do we want to help all our participants raise the bar in their own lives and take a step towards making a difference in the community, we also want to raise the bar ourselves by improving and revamping the Youth Summit. There will be business and community speakers on mental health, financial literacy, healthy relationships, and the dangers of substance use. There will also be a career panel, a Q & A, a musical performance, and various games and activities. Youth will receive breakfast, lunch, and snacks as well as a t-shirt and other giveaways as thanks for their participation. We can’t wait for everyone to see the exciting changes we’ve made this year that we feel will be very beneficial for all involved!”
