CAWS North Dakota and NLYS/SADD are partnering to host this Youth Leadership Summit. Our goal is to create a peer-led, interactive, prevention-focused event where North Dakota's youth leaders can come together and think critically about how they can confront and ultimately prevent issues in their communities, including sexual assault, dating violence, and other related topics. Participants will engage in leadership and problem-solving activities to increase their capacity to initiate change in their communities. This event is open to high school student leaders and their advisors/chaperones.




The event will be held on Bismarck State College's campus, with students staying in the residence halls. We will be utilizing meeting space at the Bismarck Public School's Career Academy, which is also located on the BSC campus.

The cost for this event will be $95/participant, which will cover group meals and lodging.




NLAB members should arrive Monday at 11am for pre-summit activities, while participants should plan to arrive at 4:00pm.




-----




Miss Representation Documentary Screening and Discussion: We will begin our event by watching this documentary, which addresses social norms, hyper-masculinity, and the sexualization of women in the media, followed by Q&A and discussion.




Mike Domitrz, author of Can I Kiss You? and editor of Voices of Courage, will be presenting his material on consent and non-confrontational bystander intervention, as well as Peer Leadership Training to assist students with community implementation. This presentation will be followed by a panel discussion where students can anonymously ask questions in real time.

Teen In Their Shoes, presented by Kristina DeVaal from CAWS North Dakota: This activity is a "Choose Your Own Adventure" - students will work in small teams to navigate through scenarios of dating violence, followed by a group discussion.




Low Ropes: Team Building and Leadership. Low Ropes offers a series of initiatives with the goal of providing an atmosphere that gives participants the experience of being valuable. It encourages teamwork, develops self-esteem, encourages healthy risk-taking, fosters trust in self and others, increases problem-solving and creativity. Through cooperative learning participants are challenged to seek solutions to situations while building life skills (i.e. communication, assessing, planning, processing, etc.). The initiatives are designed for the facilitators to teach skills masked by fun interactive activities.
