Summer Training Conferences

Still connected

Youth to Youth Virtual Training Conference
July 22-24, 2020

Due to ongoing public health concerns, Youth to Youth has made the very difficult decision to cancel this year’s physical Summer Conference Series. We are excited to announce that we will be transitioning to a virtual conference experience. We plan to give you everything that you love about a Youth to Youth conference and literally put it at your fingertips. In the coming weeks we will be announcing our keynote speakers, adult and youth workshop presenters, youth skits show, fun events and more! Oh and yes, we will be doing family groups, but they may be a little dysfunctional…by design!
