Annual Youth Conference

Every year during spring break, the Youth Advisory Committee holds an annual youth conference for all the kids and youth that are part of VACFSS.

I've been part of it for 3 years. We plan what presenters we would like to have and interview them to see if they would be a good fit; we plan the food and order it; we buy door prizes for the youth to win as well as gifts that they get for just showing up and participating; and we present the presenters with a complimentary gift as thanks for their hard work. I have helped make the poster for the event, gifted the presenters, and helped serve food. Each year we like to mix things up and try working on different areas of the planning than we might have done the previous year since we normally split up into groups to work on the different areas. It helps us to understand the complexity of planning an event, as well as what we can improve on for the next year. 

2 people I have added to my social network are Melody Crowflag and Joshua Simpson since they are fun to talk to.
