Young Leaders Conference

Dear Parents and Students,

We are so happy to be able to welcome students back on campus for the Young Leaders Conference 2022! After much thought and consideration, we decided that we are unable to host an overnight conference at this time, but we are able to offer a hybrid version. This will include one day of virtual events on Friday followed by a full day of in-person conference activities on Saturday and an optional campus tour on Sunday. Families are responsible for lodging/transportation on Saturday in order to protect our students and staff and limit close personal contact.

We could not be more excited to host these amazing future leaders for another amazing conference. Our theme “Better Together” has truly never meant more than this year. See you all soon!
