10th Annual Working With Youth Conference
May 14 & 15, 2015
Killington Grand Resort, Killington, VT
Who Should Attend?
This annual conference brings together anyone whose personal or professional life impacts the lives of youth in some significant way. The event typically draws over 250 attendees. A broad spectrum of individuals attend including educators, social workers, staff members from teen-centers and out of school time programs, health care professionals and numerous others from fields that involve interaction with young people. The Vermont Working with Youth Conference is an ongoing project that delivers both general and targeted learning opportunities designed to build shared vocabulary, common tools, and the depth of commitment that Vermont’s youth deserve. By participating in this process together, we hope to highlight our common practice, forge tighter networks, and bring greater attention to all of us who work to improve the lives of youth aged 10-21.
