The Youth Civic Leadership Summit is half day experience provided by The Black Swan Academy for middle and high school students to regain a sense of pride, purpose, and power. The students learn from local leaders, explore careers from all sectors through hands on workshops, aid in a school-based service project, and ultimately discover the leader within them. Here are a few images from this year's summit:

The following series of images is from a workshop on entrepreneurship led by Kezia Williams of The Black Upstart. The students were tasked with producing an iced tea line and marketing it to produce a profit. Judges taste tested the products and a winning team was selected based on flavor, profitability, and other metrics.
