The South Texas Adolescent Health Summit will bring together 180 youth-serving professionals from South Texas and the Coastal Bend areas to participate in two days of networking, expert discussions, and presentations with a focus on positive youth development and improving adolescent health.

The goal of the Summit is to increase knowledge, skills, and abilities among adults who provide services and support to adolescents on the Texas – Mexico Border about adolescent development, positive youth development, adolescent-friendly services, and how to apply the quality components of care through the stages of adolescence.
