Do you run or work with a youth-serving organization that helps young people? Have you wanted a better way to connect to youth and to collaborate with other youth groups?

Then the annual Youth Resource Summit is meant for you. Supported by a partnership between The Better Detroit Youth Movement and ARISE Detroit, this powerful networking / collaboration-building event is held every Spring to discuss, determine and deliver better ways to engage and enrich Detroit children and teens.

We hope to really make a difference by bringing different individuals and groups who work with our children together at the summit,” said Reuben Gordon, co-director of The Better Detroit Youth Movement, and program coordinator of The Detroit Youth Resource Alert Project (RAP). “And we think we have a powerful way to get these resources to more young people more often.”
