2016 Youth Summit
On February 20, 2016, Famicos Foundation will host its Annual Youth Wellness Empowerment Summit. This event will be held at Glenville High School 650 E. 113th Street, Cleveland Ohio 44108 from 9:30am-3:00pm and is free of charge to all student attendees. This summit hopes to give our youth the ability to make conscious choices to live well. Wellness as we know is an active process of becoming aware and making choices toward living a fulfilling life. More than the absence of illness, wellness is a dynamic and multifaceted process of change and growth in ones lives. With that in mind, we will seek to address the eight dimensions of wellness (Emotional, Occupational, Environmental, Physical, Intellectual, Social, Financial and Spiritual) in an engaging summit for students ages 12-18.
This summit is open to all students. There are no residency requirements. To register for the summit please visit www.myglenville.com/register.
