Welcome to The Collective’s Student Empowerment Summit – powered by Varsity Brands
This three-day experience is designed to help you create a meaningful Mental Health Awareness event on your school campus in May for Mental Health Awareness Month.
Use #breakthestigma throughout the Student Empowerment Summit and during your Mental Health Awareness event in May. You can also use this hashtag to post your leadership progress as you work on your event.
How does the summit work?
It’s simple! First, choose dates that work for your school. Then, follow the three-day road map with your class or leadership club. Each day requires 35 to 45 minutes. Watch the opening video, complete the We Do activity as a class or group, and then jump into the Team Empowerment Packet to start working toward making your event come to life.
