Jackson and CEO Eric Gordon will welcome more than 2,500 Cleveland Metropolitan School District (CMSD) students and their parents to “Mayor Jackson’s 7th Annual Youth Summit and CMSD Back to School Fair” at Cleveland Public Auditorium. This event is built on highlighting the importance of Conduct, Courage and Character to the youth of the City of Cleveland. Parents and students will attend workshops and visit tables with information on school, community and City of Cleveland services and resources.


This year, while supplies last, students attending the event will receive grade appropriate school supplies which include a backpack with pens, pencils, paper, glue, highlighters, etc. The goal of the summit and fair is to empower young people and their families with the fundamental skills that will translate into a successful school year and useful information they can use in their daily lives.
