Cincinnati community empowerment event

Our Youth Matter: A Vision of Hope for Tomorrow’s Future.


Rising Stars of America will host a Cincinnati community empowerment event to ignite a movement of passion and positive change. Today’s youth are facing many pressing issues from increasing violence in schools, education disparity, depression and thoughts of suicide, drug and alcohol abuse, poverty, homelessness, and a host of other things. It’s clear that in order for our young people to thrive and succeed in life, we must all work together.


This family-friendly event is FREE but online registration is required. All youth attending the seminar must be accompanied by an adult. The panel discussions will address some of the most challenging issues facing young people today.
