Gaming operator Las Vegas Sands, working with the Nevada Partnership for Homeless Youth, has made further commitment to fulfilling its corporate social responsibility objectives with the announcement that it will hold the second annual Southern Nevada Youth Homelessness Summit.

Taking place at The Venetian Resort Las Vegas, the event is part of a year-long, community-wide effort to build the region’s first-ever Southern Nevada Plan to End Youth Homelessness. Details of that effort will be unveiled at the summit.

Themed The Movement in Action, Summit 18 will both highlight the work done over the last year to create the plan, as well as provide inspirational presentations to mobilize the community toward ending the region’s chronic and significant youth homelessness problem.

Ron Reese, senior vice president of global communications and corporate affairs at Las Vegas Sands, called for a wider collaboration, saying: “We have pledged significant involvement to make an impact in youth homelessness, and we encourage our colleagues in the business community and local civic leaders to do the same by joining this year’s Summit and learning about how they can take a role in the plan. We can solve this problem with the full power of our community behind it.”
