A five-day Youth Summit will take place at the University of Kent at the end of this month.

In partnership with Kent County Council’s Reconnect program, The Kent Youth Summit will be a vibrant and engaging learning opportunity for schools from across Kent taking place over 5 days from June 27 – July 1, 09.30 – 15.00 at The University of Kent campus.

It is free to attend and will give students from Year 9 to Year 13 a platform to reconnect with each other following the pandemic, meet new people and engage in fun interactive activities and workshops to uplift and boost their confidence while catching up with missed learning.

Each day will kick off with morning workshops followed by a complimentary barbeque and the day will end with an interactive headline plenary session that combines learning with fun and creativity.
