Apply for the 2017 Summit Working Group & INI Working Group

2017 Summit Working Group

The TYC Summit is a one day conference that brings together youth from across the city to learn more about City Hall, civic affairs, and youth engagement. The theme of this year's Summit will be "Tech, Youth, and the City". 

The Summit will consist of interactive workshops and activities that will provide youth with a better understanding of how to get involved with TYC and the change they can bring within their communities and the City. 

We hope to inspire youth beyond the summit to be a leader within their city and through TYC.

When: May 2017

The 2017 Summit Working Group will be responsible for organizing this event. This is a volunteer commitment. Volunteers should expect at least 10-15 hours of work per month in the lead up to the Summit. Working Group members will be assigned a TYC email address and Slack account, which they should check at least every 48 hours. TTC tokens and volunteer hours are available for all Working Group meetings and work.
