Conference Staff Applications

Every year we offer the opportunity for youth and adults to be a part of the Youth to Youth Conference volunteer staff. The staff role is one of the most critical and influential parts of a Youth to Youth Conference. Adult Staff will have their fee waived, and selected Youth Staff will have a reduced rate to attend the conference. Youth to Youth conferences are very active, participatory conferences. It is an excellent opportunity to receive training in many areas of youth leadership/drug prevention programming. We value the commitment of those youth and adults who are willing to assist in helping teens make positive choices and we promise to make the conference a learning, rewarding and fun experience for both the adult and youth staff. For those past participants or youth staff members who have completed their 1st year of college (or are at least 19 years old) and are interested in volunteering for a conference A-Team position ( working behind the scenes), please contact Kevin at krigby@youthtoyouth.net for an A-Team application to be sent to you.
