The Pearl Foundation’s 2023 Youth Leadership Summit event is open to the public and this is the ninth year that the foundation has hosted this free event for our youth. Students from middle and high schools in Howard County and the surrounding areas will be involved in interactive activities. That will include Car Zone, Selfie & Me, Count me in, Know before you Grow, Be an MC, Just say NO, music, and SKATING. There will be rotating sessions on each life necessity, food, fun, and informational booths. We will also have a service project: PROJECT S.H.U.G.
