Informed, Inspired, Powered-Up
“We’re not mad; we’re disappointed.” 2020 was like nothing we’ve seen before: a historically divisive election; a global pandemic; and so much more. Youth couldn’t afford to stand by and wait for adults to pick up the pieces. So, we equipped ourselves with the knowledge and skills necessary to move forward, and demand our seat at the table. These challenges are immense, but also give us an unprecedented opportunity to push for change. AMP rose to meet this moment with Power Up, which is created by youth for youth to equip us with the tools we need to succeed in this unique climate. Power Up is a two-day conference where you learn necessary 21st century skills through interactive workshops, small-group discussions, and conversations with experts.
Over 50 students from 12 countries and 20 U.S. states joined us for the inaugural AMP Power Up conference in January 2021.
