The Children’s Services Council of Broward County (CSC) and community partners will host the sixth annual Teens’ Transition To Life Summit on Saturday, Oct.17 from 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. at the Renaissance Plantation Hotel.
This summit will serve as an informative day for youth with learning differences who are interested in college, vocational education and other options in life after high school.
In addition to youth learning about their options after high school, the Summit is an opportunity for parents to gain access to invaluable resources. The day includes workshops for parents supporting youth transitioning to adulthood.
Broward 211 will be present to help families interested in signing up for service programs and to check on eligibility. There will also be various activities and entertainment for youth, including a dance party.
The opening session, which starts at 10:00 a.m., will feature motivational keynote speakers Alex and Jessica Dixon, the subject and co-author of ‘A Stroke of Luck,’ a book discussing how Alex overcame the sudden onset of a mysterious illness which gave her acute pain and muscle spasms. Alex will share with the audience how her drive got her through the tough times and how she beat the odds to become a productive young woman.
