July 13-14, 2021, 11 AM – 5 PM ET

Together We Rise is a two-day leadership event where youth come together to foster global community, build new technology skills, and work with mentors to create action items to take back to Clubhouses. Youth get inspired to become inventors, innovators, entrepreneurs, and leaders.

Youth all over the world faced tremendous obstacles stemming from the pandemic which highlighted inequities that already existed. Despite the immense challenges, young people rose to the occasion by creating 3-D masks, PSAs about safety measures, led protests against police brutality, spoke out about their education experiences, and created inspiring art for all to see. Together, the Clubhouse community continues to rise to lead change in their communities and across the world.

The pandemic prevented us from hosting Teen Summit so we created a fun virtual youth leadership event to convene our community. This event is open to all Clubhouse members from ages 13-18. Alumni are also encouraged to attend portions of the event or present a workshop idea.

Event Highlights:

  • Keynote speakers and youth speakers
  • Workshops on innovative technologies
  • Networking and community building
  • Advocacy and social justice through technology
  • Pathways to college and careers
  • Fun and prizes!
