Rallying community around the power of youth is what Positive Tracks is all about. Youth learn from each other, and there is much that fellow business and nonprofit leaders can learn from youth if we’re serious about mobilizing a healthier and engaged Generation Next. The key is in the collective!
To that end, we present the Sweat For Good Summit – where giving back meets going the extra mile. Positive Tracks’ seminal two-day event is designed to spark discussion and momentum, identify barriers and solutions, and cultivate partnerships that enable young people to make the world a better place, starting with themselves. 2016 Summit was emceed by Doug Lewis, 2-time Olympian, former downhill racer, NASTAR pacesetter, and current alpine analyst for the Universal Sports Network, and speakers included Patrick Dempsey, actor and athlete; Josh Kraft, President & CEO, Boys & Girls Clubs of Boston; Jess DeVlieger, President of The Americas, C Space; Allison Bauer, Senior Director, Health & Wellness at The Boston Foundation; Gioia Perugini, Associate Director Family Office and Philanthropy Services, Hemenway & Barnes LLP; and multiple members of our Youth Ambassador Board, Board of Directors, and Tuck School of Business Fellows.
More than 200 guests from dozens of organizations will participate in the Sweat For Good Summit. Our cross-sector approach will seek to achieve the following goals:
1: Elevate the stature of youth-driven, physically-active philanthropy and civic engagement.
2: Facilitate meaningful, solutions-driven dialogue that provides pathways for youth health & wellness, leadership, and community engagement.
3: Synchronize and align strategies to capitalize on efficiencies and maximize resources. No re-creating the wheel when we can build the strongest one together!
JOIN THE CHARGE
Of course it takes more than one organization to build a movement! We love crafting meaningful and lasting partnerships with like-minded companies, foundations, and individuals who feel the same way we do about Next Gen Sweat For Good. To that end, we invite you to review our partnership levels that outline impact, brand exposure, and use of funds. Click here, or contact Liz Verney Kelsey for more information.
