Conference on Youth | October 2 | Allen County War Memorial Coliseum great kids make great communities

The flagship training for Great KIDS make Great COMMUNITIES is the Annual Conference on Youth. The Annual Conference on Youth emerged from Judge Pratt’s desire to ensure that all agencies working with children and families operated with the same strengths-based philosophy the court espoused. In 1989, the Court offered its first Annual Conference on Youth on IPFW’s campus.

Since then the Conference has grown to over 600 participants, and is currently held at the Allen County War Memorial Coliseum. This yearly training, sponsored in part by the Foellinger Foundation, brings in top professionals in the field of youth and family services to train area workers on strengths-based practices.

$35 (+$8 for CEU’s. LCSW, LMHC, LMFT or LSW licenses. All others–check with your licensing body for confirmation that conference CEUs are approved.)
