The Silicon Valley Leadership Group regularly holds The Young Women’s and Young Men’s Leadership Summits to help empower young girls and boys from local under-resourced schools. These events are opportunities for adults from local companies and non-profit organizations to interact with students, with the goal to expose and engage students in careers and career planning, mentors and the importance of a robust education in science and technology.
The 2015 Young Men’s Summit at AT&T park brought together 100 middle school students and 80 male mentors around a series of interactive sessions focused on drawing the students towards STEM careers. The Summit provides young men with the opportunity to meet influential male leaders, many of whom have been successful in overcoming adversity in their own lives. Past speakers have included Ken McNeeley, Willie Brown, Ron Gonzales and Ronnie Lott.
The next Young Men’s Summit will be held in December 2016.
