Over the past seven years, the Eat Smart Move More South Carolina Youth Summit has convened HYPE Project Youth Teams and youth from other youth-serving organizations from across the state to gather for an exciting day to celebrate their successes, meet other youth leaders, share stories of how they were able to advocate for change in their communities, and learn about ways to be engaged in their communities.


The Youth Summit offers many unique opportunities and experiences. This year's Youth Summit will have food, door prizes, music, exhibitors, lively sessions, a scavenger hunt, and more!

We are also excited to have a 2015 HYPE graduate, Moses Washington, join us as our keynote speaker.

Youth and adults are expected to act honestly, courteously, and considerately towards others attending the Summit. Attendees will adhere to the Youth Summit Code of Conduct:
