Social media summit at Champlain College

Posted: Updated:
BURLINGTON, Vt. -

A social media summit at Champlain College in Burlington.

The school is hosting 26 students from 14 different countries this week.

The goal of the summit is to train young people in the ins and outs of applications like Facebook, Twitter and Youtube so they can use them to help promote social change back home.

"My main goal is to get jobs for disabled people because in my country usually disabled people don't have equal opportunities with other people," says Aleksandra Klevakova, who's from Kazakhstan

The Youth TechCamp is sponsored by the State Department and is being implemented here in Vermont with the help of Waitsfield-based PH International.
