Youth Climate Summit USA is a network of high school students dedicated to one goal: providing young people with the skills and connections we need to be better climate advocates. The organization was created by students at Montgomery Blair High School in Silver Spring, Maryland, but has since expanded to cities across the country. We host yearly conference-style summits, with speakers, panelists, and workshop leaders from across the environmental movement, to educate youth participants about the seriousness of climate change and power of our voices in solving it. We prioritize youth leadership and youth involvement. Put simply, out mission is to give youth the tools to take control of their future.
