The annual Teen Summit is End Domestic Abuse Wisconsin’s largest training, bringing youth, parents, educators, activists, and mentors from all over Wisconsin to learn about healthy relationships, teen dating violence, and sexual assault within a larger anti-oppression framework. We include educational and enthusiastic plenary speakers, as well as topic-related performances.
End Abuse is accepting proposals for a conference planner responsible for event management, co-planning, and coordination for the 2022 Teen Summit, with the theme of rEVOLutionary ACTS. The conference will take place June 12-14, 2022 at the Kalahari Resort & Conventions in WI Dells and is anticipated to accommodate 800-1000 attendees, 28 workshops, 28 youth-led roundtables, & 3 dynamic keynote speakers. We anticipate approximately 200 hours of event planning support needed for this project. Apply by January 17. Find details and application instructions here.

Here is a list of documents that are EXTREMELY important to review BEFORE participating in the Teen Summit. The documents are split up into 2 categories: for everyone for adults. We’ve created these documents to have a baseline of shared understanding of everyone’s expectations while at the Teen Summit.
Documents that everyone should be familiar with if attending the Teen Summit.
Teen Summit Norms – The ways we agree to be with each other while at the Teen Summit. The norms are also ways to make sure that we are holding each other accountable for our actions to make a safe and brave space for everyone.
This document is for adults that are bringing youth in a mentor or chaperone capacity.
Teen Summit Mentor-Chaperone Toolkit – To provide resources, tips, and tricks to be a fully engaged adult with the youth that you are bringing to the 2021 Teen Summit. The toolkit is broken up into three parts; before, during, and after the Teen Summit. This toolkit was created by chaperones/mentors that have attended the Teen Summit in the past, Teen Council adult members, Dare 2 Know partners, and End Domestic Abuse Wisconsin Staff.

2021 was our first-ever completely virtual, completely FREE Teen Summit. This was a celebration of our many successes, as well as a time to revive and strengthen ourselves and our movement. We welcomed attendees to challenge preconceived notions on how to deal with these issues and learn new strategies for successful prevention and education on teen issues.
Thank you to our 2021 Peer Persuader Sponsor, Cuna Mutual, for your support of healthy Wisconsin youth and statewide violence prevention!
