2021 Summer Youth Leadership Convening

We are excited to announce our 7th Statewide Immigrant and Refugee Youth Leadership Convening! 

We believe in the important role and impact of young leaders in our movement. This is why PICC has continued to engage immigrant youth from across the state in advocacy, provided support and direct leadership development! In order to ensure that youth voices are at the core of the immigrant rights movement and decision making PICC has developed a new Youth Membership Initiative and continued to host our annual Summer Immigrant and Refugee Youth Leadership Convening.

Our convening will bring together 30 immigrant youth that originate from different walks of life across PA. During the weekend attendees are able to share their stories and develop leadership skills, organizing skills, and have a chance to build relationships with other youth who share similar experience and goals!

This event is open to those who identify as immigrant, refugees and children of immigrants.
