about us
Our Events Are Organized by the Emerging Leaders Summit Team as Part of Four Rivers Community's Youth Pillar.

We serve the poorest county in Oregon per capita and at-risk youth in the entirety of the Western Treasure Valley. We believe that our future leaders can be uplifted through connection, education, and inspiration. As new opportunities and challenges have arisen, we have likewise risen to the challenge.
