This Summit is founded on the principle of bringing together Somali Youth and their parents to formulate and begin a healthy dialogue within the Somali community. The goal is to help Somali Youth successfully balance and manage their faith, education and culture as American-Somalis. This Summit is unprecedented; as the Somali Youth in San Diego has, by no means, received the opportunity to discuss such important topics in an organized and focused manner. Through this summit we hope to find and understand where we are today and where we are headed as a community.
Through the help of the parents and the community we hope educate and empower the youth to become conscious of the realities of the youth of today. We hope shed light on the importance of Faith, Education and family-life.
