AYEA: Civics and Conservation Summit 2022!

Learn More about the summit
What is the Civics & Conservation Summit?

Each spring, AYEA youth delegates gather to  gain skills in communication, advocacy, and the democratic process. Teens meet with their legislators and advocate for the bills and topics they care about. The Civics & Conservation Summit is a transformational experience that empowers young people to make real change on the issues that they are most passionate about.

This year’s Civics & Conservation Summit will be held virtually from March 4-6th. If you have questions or concerns about participating virtually, contact AYEA staff at [email protected]

During the training, participants will learn: how to talk with the media, how to communicate with elected officials, how to read a bill, and how to impact decisions our leaders make about our environment and our lives. The training ends with youth-led visits to their state legislators to discuss environmental concerns and interests.

Applications will be evaluated and accepted as they come in until all 15 spots are filled, so be sure to get yours in early!
