Leadership Summit

Save the date! The 2017 Pelham PACT Middle School Leadership Summit will take place on Wednesday, December 7 at the Pelham Country Club.

The title of this year’s summit is Social Media for Positive Leadership and Change, and the day will be facilitated by a motivational speaker and comedian. Students will meet in small groups of 10 to talk about issues that concern them—stress, school culture, risky behaviors, bullying, peer pressure, friendship—and how they play out in the world of social media. There will be discussion and small group activities designed to build skills and strategies for affecting change in your life and in your community through the healthy use of social media. This is a day for Pelham youth to speak up and speak out on a topic that you may have strong feelings on and will certainly have some experience with. Students will be encouraged to share—without judgment—opinions and observations about the culture and reality of social media in their lives and in the lives of their friends.

The summit will take place from 8:15 AM until 2:30 PM; students who participate will receive 5 hours of community service credit. You can register via Eventbrite; and all students who attend will be required to bring a signed permission slip, which is available here: 2017 MS Summit Permission Slip.
