create equity through entrepreneurship
Youth ChangeMaker Summit is a 3-day immersion in how to change the world through venture creation for high school students. To create the Arizona we want, we must empower all students to build solutions to the problems they experience in their home communities.
In early 2019, Youth ChangeMaker Summit will be empowering Scottsdale and Peoria youth to improve their community!
