Thrive by 25 launched its Youth Summit on Saturday, Jan. 9. The Summit, which was planned by youth for youth and was held at Sacred Heart University was attended by 217 people.
Thirteen young adults serving as Thrive by 25 Ambassadors developed the Summit. In addition to developing the Summit, the Ambassadors serve as an advisory group for Thrive by 25 and provide outreach to Fairfield County's youth community. They focus on engaging young adults and employers to address solutions at the intersection of education, workforce development and jobs with the goal of ensuring the economic well being of our region's young people by the time they reach age 25.
