More information about Teen Summit

Tacoma, July 9, 2014 – 2 youth leaders from the Computer Clubhouse of Tacoma are heading to Boston, Massachusetts, in July to join nearly 200 other young people for the Intel Computer Clubhouse Network’s 2014 Teen Summit. Youth from 18 countries including India, Jordan, Israel, Ireland, South Africa, New Zealand, Brazil, and the United States will be in Boston from July 29th-August 3rd to explore using technology to make positive change and stand up for youth rights in issues such as education, environment, freedom & safety, health, and speech & expression.
These youth ambassadors, Jade Hicks and Alliyah Peoples, were chosen for their outstanding peer leadership and efforts to give back to their community. Jade and Alliyah, both juniors at Stadium High School, began attending the Computer Clubhouse when they were in middle school. After the sudden passing of former director, Dr. Luversa Sullivan, both girls stopped attending. Within the past year, both girls have returned, and thrived as peer mentors. Jade can usually be found in the music studio recording music or the Make It! Lab teaching LEGO robotics. Alliyah is always coming up with ideas of how to put her new found love of coding to use whether it’s creating a Seahawks animation in Scratch, or creating a 3D game in Alice.
