Empire Promise:

The 11th Annual Empire Promise Youth Summit hosted approximately 200 Liberty Partnerships Program high school students (and a couple of middle school students) from all across New York State for a fun-filled and educational weekend at the Desmond Hotel and Conference Center in Albany, NY.

This event which spans three days (April 9th-11th) was filled with opportunities for students to get to know each other, learn about college and career readiness, examine their own goals and ambitions, discuss leadership qualities and even took them off-site to the Capitol, to local colleges and to the local Catholic Charities to participate in a service project. Some of the comments received from students who attended this year's event included: "I learned a lot", "I enjoyed meeting new people from other Liberty programs" and "Make it longer".
