TEEN SUMMIT IS A BIENNIAL WEEK-LONG YOUTH LEADERSHIP EVENT that brings Clubhouse youth from each of the 100+ international Clubhouses together in Boston. Youth leaders participate in hackathons designed to address global issues through creativity and technology. Each Teen Summit also includes a college and career fair, collaborative cross-cultural activities, and other opportunities for educational, career, interpersonal and personal growth.

- Enable youth to share experiences, knowledge, and resources with others from around the world.
- Encourage youth to apply the skills they have developed in The Clubhouse to educational and career paths.
- Build leadership, communication, and teamwork, as well as foster appreciation for different cultures.
