Agents of Change

Youth Leadership Conference



The first “Agents of Change” youth leadership conference brought together high school students from rural, suburban and urban communities from across Virginia to focus on service learning and civic responsibility. Students returned home with the framework to implement service projects in their communities.

Civic leader and patriotic philanthropist David M. Rubenstein was the keynote speaker, sharing with the students his own perspective on civic engagement and the importance of American history. Gifts and grants made during the American Revolution at Yorktown Campaign for Support provided full scholarships for participants.

The “Agents of Change” youth leadership conference will be presented again in 2020 thanks to the support of the Camp Foundations, the Carter Cabell Chinnis Charitable Trust, and the Chinnis Charitable Remainder Annuity Trust.
