The 2nd Annual MLK Teen Summit will be held from 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM on Monday, January 20 at the McCrorey Family YMCA.

The purpose of the McCrorey Family YMCA's MLK Teen Summit is to educate, empower and inspire Charlotte youths to build an entrepreneurial spirit that will allow them to realize their personal and professional dreams.

Keynote speaker Chavis Gash of Dream Builders Communications, Inc. will engage teens in discussion around social justice, higher education, entrepreneurship and civic engagement. This is a theme that will be uplifted at the YMCA's 20th Annual MLK Holiday Prayer Breakfast held in the Crown Ballroom of the Charlotte Convention Center, immediately preceding the event.
