About 350 high school students from across New Hampshire are expected to take part at the start of a “Youth Summit” hosted by Dartmouth-Hitchcock.
Students will be gathering in Concord April 5-6. The first day’s program, “Knowledge, Empowerment, Understanding,” includes discussion groups focusing on mental health, diversity and respect, school violence, the pressure for success, and distracted driving.
Each group will have a student facilitator, supported by an adult subject-matter expert.
The focus turns to adults on the second day with a program called, “They’re Talking: Are We Listening?”
Speakers at the event include World Cup champion and Olympic gold medal-winning skier Hannah Kearney; actor, producer and director Jim Wahlberg; social media innovator Wendy Sue Swanson; and Ford Racing driver, coach and instructor Mike Speck.
