Joliet Unity Movement’s Youth Summit was Saturday September 16, marking the start of the fourth year of events and programming.

A panel of Student Ambassadors from Joliet Township High School’s West and Central campus presented on a variety of topics.

The Student Ambassadors showcased their career academy choices and described what factors led to their decisions. They also reflected on their participation in various events Joliet Unity Movement has held over the years.

Members offered a platform for youth to select the topic of the next Youth Summit. Choices such as Bullying, Understanding Mental Health, Immigration, and Black on Black Crime.
