Ride to the Olympics host Teen Summit
Ride to the Olympics, Change 4 Hope host 4th Annual Teen Summit at Forest Park High School
By: Ride to the Olympics foundation
The upcoming summit will cover topics centered around career opportunities, entrepreneurship, financial education, gangs, grief, human trafficking, incarceration, relationship building, sexually transmitted diseases, and teen parenthood.
Additionally, Miguel Wilson, owner of The Miguel Collection and co-founder of Ride to the Olympics, is set to speak on entrepreneurship, equestrian education and fashion.
After over 20 years in the fashion industry, Wilson created the Ride to the Olympics foundation to provide underprivileged youth with the opportunity to participate in equestrian sports. The foundation's support allows these youth access to activities that their socio-economic status would deny them.
Wilson himself attributes his success to his exposure to equestrian sports.
"That passion for horses really changed my trajectory in life, exposing me to people and things that other kids in my environment were not exposed to," Wilson told Torrence Banks at the Maroon Tiger. "As an adult, I created a foundation called Ride To The Olympics which is about helping inner-city kids have access to the same types of experiences with equestrian sports horses and sports."
More recently, through the support of Ride to the Olympics, Morehouse College was able to become the first Historically Black College and University (HBCU) to acquire a polo team.
