Put Your Passion into Action

⁠Thanks for two days of inspiration and fun!⁠

Thank you to everyone who participated in making our 2021 Disruptivator Summit an epic experience. We intentionally embraced the theme Next Generation Loading as a way to honor the brilliance of our youth while providing the necessary tools and resources to help them feel recharged, reenergized and ready to forge their own paths of success.

The Disruptivator Summit was an inspiring, virtual gathering of forward-thinking youth in 9th grade through 12th grade. Across two days of fun and insightful programming, youth participants experienced dynamic speakers, networking events, performances, and tons of awesome surprises!
