Summit 2020

We are celebrating our 20th annual Taking Flight to Change Middle School Summit and the theme is Connect With Kindness. Middle schools in Sussex County (nearly 5000 kids!) will be participating by viewing powerful videos tailored to our students, taking part in daily Kindness Challenges and will be given opportunities to participate in Instagram Live events with some of our notable presenters. This year’s Summit will provide a uniform message to Sussex County middle school students that they can make a difference and positively affect change within their community in an effort to build empathy and foster resilience. We are confident this week’s events will energize and motivate students just as it has in the past 19 years! Throughout the week, we hope you check us out daily at noon for our Facebook LIVE event and message of the day. A special thank you to our event sponsor, Visions Federal Credit Union, as well as our supporters, Sparta Kiwanis and Selective Insurance Foundation.
