The annual Teen Summit is End Domestic Abuse Wisconsin’s largest training. Bringing youth, parents, educators, activist, and mentors from all over Wisconsin to learn about healthy relationships, teen dating violence, and sexual assault within a larger antioppression framework. There will be THREE Educational and enthusiastic plenary speakers with Dr. Bettina Love, Rosa Clemente, and Ajani Carr! There are topic related performances. We are expecting our highest attendance yet, with over 500-600 anticipated attendees!

It will be a celebration of our many successes, as well as, a time to revive and strengthen ourselves and our movement. We welcome attendees to challenge preconceived notions on how to deal with these issues and learn new strategies for successful prevention and education on teen issues.

The event starts on a Sunday to avoid taking youth out of school three days in a row. End Abuse offers an Excused Absence Form form every year that students can provide their schools without fear of being tardy or having unexcused absences. Check out the 2019 Teen Summit Information Flyer

Roundtables at a Glance

The roundtable discussion topics will be repeated for BOTH roundtable sessions.

The following roundtable topics are for YOUTH only. Youth-led roundtables are spaces that have been intentionally created to allow for youth, under the age of 21, to connect with their peers on a specific topic they have experience with or are curious to hear more about. These spaces are for youth and facilitated by youth. There will be only ONE trusted adult allowed in the space for support and conversations are confidential.

After the youth presenters talk about their experiences with the topic, participants will be encouraged to sit at tables and have small group conversations with their peers that are close in age. This space is not action or skill-building focused, it is specifically for dialogue, self-reflection and relationship building. We hope you enjoy and are able to change the way you see or understand the topic presented.

Teen Roundtable Topics
I Don’t Belong Here!? Challenges as an Immigrant Youth
The Problem with Allyship
All I See is Racism: How Do We Bridge the Gap?
The Model Minority Myth: Why are People of Color Fighting Against Each Other?!
Food & Culture
Breaking Out of the Man & Woman Box

Healing from Unhealthy Relationships
