Young Appalachian Story Summit
About the Summit
The Young Appalachian Storytelling Summit is a youth-led event that focuses on a critical issue: how youth can use storytelling as a leadership tool to create Appalachia’s future. Summit participants have the opportunity to hear from young, diverse voices within Appalachia; to understand how the arts of storytelling can help them take action in their own communities; and to join a network of like-minded young Appalachians to collaborate with beyond the event. The Summit focuses on the issues in Appalachia that attendees are passionate about and participants have the opportunity to customize one-of-a-kind agendas based on their own interests and experience.
