The 2021 Youth Track is Virtual this year. 

The Goals of the Youth Track:

  • Provide an opportunity for innovative & interactive student leaders (age 14 - 18 years of age) to network
  • Discuss alcohol and drug issues and promote creative, interactive problem solving 
  • Learn from nationally acclaimed speaker and Northwest native, Nigel Wrangham and put those skills to use to better your local community


  • Each organization / group must have one adult registered for the youth track.  This person will be the main contact person for the organization / group.
  • Each organization / group must have the adult who is registered and each registered youth logged in to the virtual training opportunity and complete the session together.  The session will be offered on THREE different dates/times to accommodate different schedules, once on each day of the adult conference (June 28, 29, 30), specific times to be announced.  
  • Each youth must have a waiver on file prior to June 27, 2021. 
  • The registration system requires a specific email address for each registration.
