The YES Summit

The Awards just seem to keep coming in for the Valdosta State University’s NAACP chapter. VSU’s NAACP chapter won two awards at the Youth Empowerment Summit (the YES Summit) held at Clark Atlanta University on the weekend of Sept. 21 -23. The YES Summit’s theme was “Thinking Outside the Box.” Some topics included Juvenile Justice, 21st Century Civil Rights Problems, the 2012 election, and other issues affecting our youth. VSU’s NAACP chapter won the Chapter of the Year for their second year in a row. They have also won an award for the Juvenile Justice initiative, which they also won at the national convention.
Because of their great success at the summit, the chapter has been featured on their university's homepage, accompanied with an article and picture of the NAACP chapter’s executive board. To read the article visit the link below:
