Request for Proposals

The Social Development Commission (SDC) has begun planning for the 2023 Youth Empowerment Summit. Our goal is to equip the youth of Milwaukee County with the tools to break the cycles of poverty and trauma in their communities and to walk away as empowered leaders and changemakers for their generation.

This year’s theme is:

My Brilliancy is My Resiliency

  • Trauma & Coping Skills
  • Mental Health & Wellness
  • Alcohol & Drug Prevention
  • Healing Arts
  • Leadership Skills
  • Entrepreneurship
  • Career Paths
  • Body Image and Self-Esteem
