What is The Junior UP Experience?
The Junior UP Experience is a one-day miniature conference on October 25, 2012, in which five fascinating presenters from the full-day adult UP Experience will speak to 400 high school students in a room down the hall from the main theatre. The speakers will speak for 20 minutes each, with time for interaction and questions. It is an incredible opportunity to learn from the brightest thinkers of our day.
Contact your high school principal to see if your school was one of the 40 high schools selected for this year’s Junior UP Experience.
A Message from Founder Cody Rapp:
After attending The UP Experience the first year, I was really blown away by the entire day. My mind was simply spinning with the new knowledge and ideas I had gained, and with the hundreds of ways I could apply that knowledge to my life at home and at school. So after thinking about the idea, something occurred to me: Why can’t I share this same concept with other high school kids my age? Imagine the possibilities if 400 high school students from all over Houston and the surrounding areas, attended a conference such as this one, gained some unique insight, brought back this knowledge to their respective schools, and paid it forward by changing something for the better. Thus, the idea of the “Junior UP Experience” was born.
As I am starting my third year of college, I know from experience that an event like this has the potential to inspire and enlighten people from all different backgrounds and from all walks of life. The Junior UP offers insight into the true forefront of our future from the amazing people that have the ideas that are changing our futures. We, the youth of today, are the future. Shouldn’t we have access to that knowledge and learn as much as we can about what lies ahead? I hope to see you there!
