Lead On! For Peace and Equality in Alaska
Lead On represents a group of youth and adults from across Alaska who are committed to positively impacting their communities. A goal of this program is to shift norms around respect, sexual assault and teen dating violence. The Lead On summit is an annual event that brings youth and adults together for three days in Anchorage where they build leadership skills to promote healthy relationships. This youth-driven summit includes national speakers, Alaska youth speakers, and Alaskan adults who provide inspiration, tools, and opportunities for youth to promote respect. Youth spend a significant amount of time planning for projects in their home community. A five-minute documentary, developed to explain Lead On! to youth and potential partners, is available at www.andvsa.org/lead-on/.
