Founded on August 15, 1993

In August 1993, the Monterey Peninsula Branch of the NAACP and other concerned community adults and youths ratified the concept of an annual Youth Summit. The purpose of such an event would be to bring together youth of all races and cultures throughout Monterey County to discuss, from their perspective, the myriad of problems they face, and offer solutions to those problems.
Initially, a Summit Organizing Committee, made up entirely of young people, was formed to organize the first summit. It is to the credit of these youth that the Youth Summit became a reality.
During those early years, the Summit Organizing Committee, the adult advisors and the membership of the Monterey Peninsula Branch of the NAACP saw the Youth Summit as an important first step in the ultimate resolution of the problems that beset many youth in the area. Initially the Summit featured interactive workshops, activities and speakers, and has evolved over the years to now provide free breakfast and lunch to all participants, as well as free backpacks and school supplies to the first 200 kids who register. There is also a talent show which showcases the diverse array of talented kids in the area, who win prizes for their performances.
