Your opinion matters: Help us plan for Rising Voices 2020!

The 2020 Rising Voices Youth Summit is coming up soon, with three events in April and early May 2020.

This annual event brings together young people ages 13 to 18 from across Pima County to discuss their concerns and plan projects that will make an impact in their schools, libraries, and communities.

Last year, more than 60 youth participated! Check out the photosopens a new window on Flickr. 

This year, we are going to go even bigger, and we need your help! We are seeking young people ages 14 to 18 to plan our 5th annual event!

The Rising Voices Planning Team will work with library staff and community members to select the theme, marketing, content, locations, and structure of the three events, which will take place in April and early May.

The team will meet once a month in the evenings in the several months leading up to the events, in addition to helping host the three events. Participants will gain real life leadership and job skills and project management experience.
