About Youth Green Jobs Summit
The Milwaukee Youth Green Jobs Summit is the only one of its kind in our city. The intent of the event is to break through the racial homogeneity of the green industry and empower young people to take ownership of their community’s well-being and natural resources. The summit will connect people of color with careers in environmental advocacy. With an artistic, musical, youth-centric approach, the event will highlight employment and career exploration opportunities available with local organizations dedicated to preserving and enhancing our natural resources and public green space.
The Summit will feature:
- Live interactive mural art
- Live performances by local artists
- Interactive table presenters
Attendees who get their passport stamped at every table will be entered into a raffle
