The Arlington Foundation for Excellence in Education in partnership with the Xi Theta Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Incorporated ® is hosting the Annual Youth Education Success (YES!) Summit, which is now in its 15th year.

This unique, complimentary, teen-focused summit provides valuable educational workshops and resources to over 750 youth and over 250 parents in and around the Dallas – Fort Worth Metroplex. YES! Summit will address today’s growing need for life skills, STEM career awareness, and educational preparedness.

The YES! Summit is a conference for students in grades 6-12 that provides them with an opportunity to network with their peers, and attend a variety of workshops on leadership and self-sufficiency for academic and personal success. The Yes Summit will feature a motivational speaker, valuable workshops, and exhibitors. A unique feature of the YES! Summit is to provide education workshops and resources to parents to encourage them to become more involved in their students’ education. Potential workshop topics for the YES! Summit include STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, & Mathematics) awareness and education, college preparation, self-development, importance of choices, topics on transition into adulthood, career goals and much, much more!

Attendees can attend this complimentary event and also receive breakfast, lunch, and wonderful and exciting giveaways.  The goal of the YES! Summit is for the Arlington and surrounding communities’ youth to inspire and imagine the possibilities
