Students from cities across Texas will visit Fort Worth and learn how to make a positive impact in their communities.

The 19th annual Texas Youth Advisory Commission Summit is coming to Fort Worth.

The summit is a two-day statewide event sponsored by the Texas Municipal League and hosted by the City of Fort Worth, Feb. 23-24 at Tarrant County College Trinity River Campus. This year’s theme is “Beyond All Limits” and will give attendees a chance to interact with professional speakers and peers in a fun and safe environment.

The Youth Advisory Commission Summit is an opportunity for cities, schools and community youth groups to share the experiences of their programs and the positive impact that the programs have had locally. The summit is organized to promote a fun environment for youth and city leaders to learn from and work with each other. Adults and students will leave with a greater appreciation of their own programs and new ideas to move their group forward in coming years.

This event provides excellent networking opportunities with leaders from established youth advisory commissions across the state. This is a chance for commission members to show off their successes from the past year, share their goals for the coming year, hear from inspirational speakers and network with other commissions.

Registration is $50 per attendee (youth or adult) and includes admission to all summit sessions and events, continental breakfasts, lunch and an event T-shirt. Early registration ends Jan. 31. Registrations after this deadline are $75 each and based on availability.
