Over the years, as the lives of families transformed, The International Black Summit has expanded to be an inter-generational gathering, bringing together adults, youth, young adults and elders to be in relationship with each other. 

At the same time, there are safe spaces that provide each age group the opportunity to be fully expressed while they share and nurture their vision.
The purpose of the International Black Summit is to provide an opportunity for participants to bring into being their vision for the black community and the world.
The International Black Youth Summit exists to facilitate the connection, self-expression and empowerment of young people of African Descent around the world. Youth participants, age 8-17, are young people making their visions real in their communities and exemplifying the principals of youth, transformation, love and possibility as a powerful approach to the universe.
The purpose of the International Black Young Adult Summit is to provide an opportunity for participants' ages 18 to 35 a space for reflection, communication, mentorship and growth, through vision creation and implementation. This conversation empowers young adults to powerfully transition to adulthood equipped for global success.
