YAA Youth Conference 2017

March 23, 2017



This year Youth Agencies Alliance hosted its first ever Youth Conference. The idea came from YAA’s Youth Council, and they assisted YAA in the planning of the conference. The aim of the conference was to education youth on a variety of topics they were interested in, as well as to enable them to make new connections and friends. The conference was held on Saturday, February 25th at the University of Winnipeg and 24 youth from our member agencies attended. The workshop sessions covered a broad number of topics that the youth wanted to know more about. Overall the conference received very positive feedback and many participants expressed interest in attending this conference again in the future.
