MCSAP Youth Summit


Location: Neu-Life Community Development

The MCSAP Youth Summit is back! This year's summit will take on marijuana. Although many young people don't believe that smoking weed is a problem, it has serious consequences for youth, including interfering with getting a job, obtaining financial aid for school, and thinking clearly.

The MCSAP Youth Summit will feature marijuana real-talk workshops, high-energy guest speakers, contests, giveaways, food, and tons of resources.

The summit will be held on Friday, March 9, from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m., at Neu-Life Community Development, 2014 W. North Ave., Milwaukee. The summit is free and food is included.

Youth groups and their leaders are welcome. Contact Jody Rhodes at 414-588-1589 or jody@neu-life.org to RSVP or with questions.
