Kentucky Wesleyan College hosts Youth Summit - Tri-State News, Weather & Sports

Students gather at Kentucky Wesleyan College for annual event

OWENSBORO, KY (WFIE) -

Hundreds of middle and high school students from several counties will gather in Owensboro to talk about everyday issues.

The 15th annual Youth Summit will take place later this morning at the Woodward Health and Recreation Center on Kentucky Wesleyan College's campus, just off of Frederica Street in Owensboro. 

The goal is to help students prepare to be future business and community leaders by talking with their peers about some of the issues and struggles that they face every day.

Students will be able to attend various sessions that cover a wide range of topics and are taught by community leaders.

They'll explore things like college and career readiness, as well how to deal with typical problems such as learning how to accept each other's differences and what makes up a healthy relationship.

Between 300 and 500 students from Daviess, Hancock, McLean, and Union Counties will be at today's Summit.

Organizers say they hope students leave with some new perspectives and ideas about their futures.

Everything starts at 8:30 Wednesday morning as students start getting ready for the next chapters of their lives.
