The 2022 Points of Light Conference was filled with memorable moments, but one that stood out in particular was this year’s Youth Summit. The Youth Summit opened with a welcome from Points of Light President and CEO Natalye Paquin and Points of Light Board Chair Neil Bush. Mr. Bush shared about his father, President George H.W.

Points of Light awarded the Daily Point of Light Award in February 2020 to Breanna and Brooke Bennett, founders of Women in Training, Inc. The WIT founders were able to attend the conference in July at Walt Disney World Resort thanks to a generous scholarship from UPS and Citi.
“We are grateful that we had the incredible opportunity to network with corporate leaders and other leaders of all ages,” Brooke said. “I was especially inspired by the 'Kindness' presentation by Orion Jean, TIME Kid of the Year. He is so adorable and full of love.”
"The Youth Summit was the greatest highlight, plus meeting Mr. Jeff Hoffman of the Points of Light Board," Bree said. "Mr. Hoffman really understood our period poverty mission from a global perspective!"
