2021 Virtual Youth Education Summit

Understanding Success in the Age of Social Media


There are multiple goals and objectives for this event which are targeted towards young people, parents and educators. It is our main goal to help you believe that you as a youth, parent or educator can create the life you want and be as successful as anyone else. The message is that no matter where you are from or what your circumstances may be, you should never give up on your dreams. You will learn the true meaning of success. We are bombarded with external ideas of what success is from society or others around us, which is usually that of being famous or millionaires, becoming a doctor or lawyer and putting the stigma on us that our worth is merely based on having fame, fortune, and now more likes or followers on social media. Understanding what true success is and how to achieve it is the key, and we will do this by sharing the struggles and adversities  encountered by those who are living their dreams, vision and passion, so that those who are facing the same situations or having difficult times at this moment, can have real-life examples to relate to. It is important for the youth of today to know that no matter where they are now, no matter how deplorable their conditions may be, whether they come from divorced or single parent homes, are in foster care, struggling in school, facing racial, social or gender inequities, etc., that they too can achieve their goals and do what they love, in any profession. The key is breaking down what they have been preconditioned to believing and instilling in them the steps they need to take to make this a reality, to believe in themselves and fulfill their dreams.
