Nationally, Youth to Youth is the recognized leader for engaging youth in positive change. Each summer, Youth to Youth offers tremendous leadership opportunities for adolescents and the adults who work with them. The one-of-a-kind conference experience, led by trained teens alongside adults, is the training that group and coalitions across the country count on annually to serve as a vital catalyst to initiative or strengthen their youth prevention programming.
This year Teen Health Connection is excited to host the second Youth to Youth Southern States Conference in Charlotte at Queens University.
2017 Southern States Conference Monday, July 17 - Thursday, July 20, 2017.
By attending this four day conference, adolescents will meet and befriend drug-free teens from all over the country, develop skills to make positive choices, attend interactive and informative workshops, hear nationally known speakers, develop action plans to create change in their schools and communities and learn vital leadership qualities and skills that they can use for a lifetime, and most importantly, HAVE A BLAST!
Every year, youth and adults are offered the opportunity 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 the Conference. Adult staff will have their fee waved and youth staff will have a reduced rate to attend the conference. Youth to Youth and Teen Health Connection value the commitment of youth and adults who are willing to assist in helping teens make positive choices.
We invite you to follow us on social media to see photos from the 2016 conference and encourage you to spread the word to adolescents about this opportunity for the 2017 summer.
