Event description

Description

Our focus for the 2018 “Un-conference” is on strengthening our local youth through resources, information, opportunities, etc.

Our keynote speaker this year will be Martin Eakes, visionary co-founder and CEO of Self-Help Credit Union. Mr. Eakes will join Gloria Shealey, President and CEO of The Daniele Company, Tyrone Young, Owner of The Gift Production Company, and other speakers in telling the experiences that motivated them to give back to their communities.

Other conference highlights include a variety of informational panels on local organizations that serve youth and other resources available to youth, a workshop on “Making a Way out of No-Way,” an expo of local youth entrepreneurs and their businesses, pitches by young entrepreneurs, as well as performances and participation by local youth and youth organizations.

There will be both breakfast and lunch served, at no cost to participants, and child care and interpretation services will be provided. All of this is free and open to the public!
