TU Teen Summit: leadership, conservation, community, and fly fishing

The TU Teen Summit is an annual leadership conference for TU Teens that want to make a difference! The Summit recruits young leaders from rising freshman to rising seniors in high school that are committed to conservation and have demonstrated leadership in their communities.

If you’re a teen, join us for the Teen Summit to meet other TU Teens from across the country, learn how to become a TU leader in your community, build team and leadership skills, restore habitat on a service project, explore career paths in the outdoors and conservation, and – oh yeah! – FISH! Spend five days with a group of new friends that love fishing, the outdoors and TU as much as you do.

Things we do:

  • conservation and eco-tours
  • leadership and team-building skills workshops
  • conservation and science sessions
  • special guest speakers
  • service project
  • learn about local culture
  • lots of time for hanging out, tying flies, and fishing!

Following the Summit experience, the attendees form TU’s Youth Leadership Council or YLC. The YLC stay involved with each other, their local community, and with TU staff throughout the year working on projects and outreach with the goal to raise TU’s profile among their peers and gain valuable experience.
