Annual OMEGA Summit

OMEGA convenes student summits each year in an effort to encourage students to connect across generations, brainstorm and share programming ideas, and plan intergenerational activities. The OMEGA Summit is also an ideal time to learn about the OMEGA scholarship application process and eligibility requirements. Students in grades 9-12 across the U.S. are invited to participate in the summits. Learn about the 2022 OMEGA Summit here. The next OMEGA Summit will take place in October 2023.
