    • Immediately following the group photo, youth will travel to the service projects. Youth volunteers will break into teams and help meet a variety of needs in the Kansas City community! Check the back of your nametag for your group number and load up in the corresponding van. Youth volunteering at YVCHQ will be walking to Headquarters on Jefferson Street.
    • Explore Kansas City and get to know other Summit attendees on Friday evening! There are no organized events during this time. Take advantage of the many places to eat around downtown, hop on the free streetcar, or take a trip to one of Kansas City’s many museums. For more about the city, check out


    • The Awards Ceremony begins at 6:30 in the Ballroom. We look forward to celebrating the YVC network with you at this dressy casual event. This will be the closing of Summit 2019. Please avoid creating travel plans that would require you to leave Summit before the Awards Ceremony. We want to respect your time and ensure that every minute you spend at the Summit is used well, so make sure to plan to stay through 8:30p on Saturday.
