About the Conference

Where else would you want your son or daughter to be but at the 21st Annual Y2Y Conference held at Monte Vista High School in Danville?

More than 80 high school leaders from the San Ramon Valley and Castro Valley are going to be asking 350 middle school youth to "MY WAY" on Saturday, March 7, 2015. 

For the past several months these high school students have been working enthusiastically planning drug prevention programs, participating in leadership activities and having a whole lot of fun while planning this conference for your 6th, 7th or 8th grader. 

High school leaders will guide their younger peers through skits, panel discussions, team building challenges, and small group activities.  More than 20 workshops will be offered throughout the day.  The conference will end with an exciting dance geared towards middle school students.  More than just an event, the Youth to Youth Middle Conference is a way to see the best in teens and their leadership skills.   If your kids like hanging out with their friends, meeting new friends, having fun, dancing and good food ~ then this is the conference for them.

Meet this year's keynote speaker...Patrick Maurer!


Patrick believes that everyone can find the extraordinary aspects in their lives, and he proves it by sharing his tremendous insights and real life stories. Plus, he’s a whiz at pop culture, so the audience is always in for an extra treat!

With a B.A. in Communication and a background in improvisational comedy, Patrick taught high school English before finding his real gift for speaking and training. He travels all over the country speaking to well over 30,000 students each year. It’s no wonder that when Patrick speaks, the energy is high, the applause is great, and everyone walks away feeling a whole lot better about themselves.

Patrick’s keynotes are a great way to kick off or conclude your event. His unique blend of pop culture references, humorous personal experience, insightful observation, and literary examples point out the extraordinary aspects of our “extra ordinary” lives. His stories are authentic, personal, and purposeful, tied together to provide a message that resonates with the audience. Patrick’s keynotes are customized to meet your organization’s needs.

About Youth to Youth

The Youth to Youth program is a community-based drug, alcohol, tobacco prevention and youth leadership program created in 1982 in Columbus, Ohio and is proudly sponsored by Community Against Abuse (CASA) in the San Ramon Valley and Castro Valley Community Action Network (CV CAN) in Castro Valley.  The all day conference is an entire day that kids get together, have fun and talk about some really important issues. It is an opportunity for young people to support each other working towards one common goal - to make the very best decision and live a healthy, drug free life.
