Sister clubs Youth and Government and Model United Nations will be attending the Dallas Urban Youth Summit Saturday to learn about leadership and professionalism.

“We’re going to get to meet with a bunch of people from a lot of different fields and listen to lectures and get advice from them,” sophomore Aleeza Hussain said. “It’s going to be a really good experience for the delegates.”

Planned by the Texas YMCA, the summit is a chance for students to meet professionals working in the fields they want to pursue.

“The [summit] will be a good opportunity for students to open up their minds to new ideas and understand what they can do to take part in helping solve problems in their communities,” junior Shivani Kosuri said via text. “It will also be very informational for them to learn new things and hear about stories that could be life changing.”

For junior Anoushka Majumdar, the summit presents a chance to learn about various topics that she’s interested in studying in the future.

“I’m excited about the different sessions that I’m going to experience because the topics of the policy sessions seem really interesting and relevant,” Majumdar said. “I feel like these sessions could really help me learn more and help me enhance my leadership skills.”

However Hussain, who serves as a co-parliamentarian for Youth and Government, hopes the summit will provide more than just academic opportunities.

“I think it’s going to definitely help our club develop our overall knowledge and debating skills, but I also think it’s going to be a good chance to get to know each other,” Hussain said. “Hopefully they’ll get to know each other and what they’re interested in and maybe bond over that.”
