Collective successes and strengths in CYC education will be shared, along with faculty and student resources that reflect a strength-based practice perspective.  Additionally, active discussions will be focused on current challenges in CYC education, including topics such as teaching CYC from a relational lens, diversity in CYC education and translating CYC learning in field work settings.  Save the date and prepare to participate!

Welcome Reception

Join us for an evening of socializing with fellow conference delegates from around the globe.  Appetizers will be served and a cash bar will be available.

Conference Days

Your conference experience will be enhanced by the ability, should you desire, to"choose your own adventure" in the thematic selection of your workshops, such as Child and Youth Care as Advocates and Activists; Reconciliation Informing Practice; and Improving Service, led by engaging leaders and scholars in the Child and Youth Care Community and beyond.
