APYD is dedicated to empowering young people in marginalized communities with tools and resources to thrive in life. Our annual youth leadership summit is designed to transform lives and help youth realize their full potential. In this one-day event, we bring speakers and experts to facilitate leadership workshops and activities, provide youth with food and school supplies, and connect youth to local resources and opportunities.

Our FREE Youth Summit Inspires Youth to Be Changemakers!

UPDATE: Due to safety concerns during the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, the 2021 youth summit in Los Angeles, CA has been postponed.
