What is Youth Summit NYC?
Students and Educators for Equity (SEE) brings together a collective of youth leaders and adult allies to highlight the effects of disproportionality on students, while providing best practices for fostering more inclusive, connected, and humanizing learning environments for all members of our school communities.

Youth Summit FAQ
WHEN IS YOUTH SUMMIT?
Youth Summit NYC takes place every year in June on Chancellors Day.
HOW CAN I PRESENT AT YOUTH SUMMIT?
Youth-led organizations, youth programs, interested in presenting at the Youth Summit must apply through our Call for Proposals application. We invite all youth organizing groups and leadership councils, along with youth-adult partnership programs, and other organizations that aim to elevate youth voices to present a workshop session, exhibit a resource table, contribute artwork, or deliver a performance.
Sign up for our mailing list to be notified when the application comes out in February.
WHAT TOPICS DO WORKSHOPS FOCUS ON?
We encourage presenters to tell the story of their work and journeys. Workshops should relate to restorative practices, equity work, and or youth-adult partnership efforts.
Some examples include: school discipline, restorative justice, youth organizing strategies/campaigns, civic participation, school-to-prison pipeline, youth agency/voice, culturally responsive education...
...but the possibilities are endless.
WHO IS SEE?
SEE is a youth-led program within the NYC Department of Education's Office for Safety and Youth Development.
Students and Educators for Equity (SEE) is a family of schools that is dedicated to building community, dismantling disproportionality, and fostering equity through restorative practices and authentic youth-adult partnership. It is not simply an extracurricular program for students; it is a laboratory for shared learning among schools that are deeply engaged in youth-led restorative practices and equity work and have established restorative practices and equity teams (RPETs).
