The Wyoming Youth Summit was a four-day conference, July 30–August 2, 2018 at Mallo Camp in Newcastle that drew more than 70 7th to 12th graders from across the state for youth-driven workshops and outdoor activities designed to empower them to form a statewide peer-to-peer network committed to making positive change in their communities.

The Wyoming Youth Summit offered interactive training sessions led by youth and noted experts who will train youth on personal and professional prevention development skills. There were also be outdoor activities to allow youth to experience the beauty of our great state and build teamwork and friendships with their peers. The summit also offered the opportunity for youth to meet state leaders and experts in traffic safety, substance abuse prevention, and mental health awareness who will offer training and resources and empower youth to share that information through their peer-to-peer networks.
