Youth summit postponed until March 26

Mayor Setti Warren’s third Youth Summit for teens and adults that had been scheduled for this week has been postponed until March 26 “because of unforeseen circumstances,” according to Jenny O’Leary, director of youth services for Newton.

O’Leary said the event’s featured speaker, comedian Kevin Breel, told the city Thursday morning that he would have to reschedule his appearance.

The summit will focus on communication issues, and on facilitating conversations between adults and youths on difficult topics.

Breel, 20, is an advocate on teen mental health issues.

More information about Breel, and a video of his TedxYouth talk can be found on his website, www.kevinbreel.com.

The summits are designed to bring parents, youths, and other members of the community together to focus on challenges facing the city’s teens.

They are sponsored by the city’s Youth Commission and Health and Human Services Department, and the nonprofit Newton Partnership.

O’Leary said the summit will take place from 6 to 9 p.m. on the new date, with the location to be determined.
