Youth Strengths Conference Recap
The Acting Together-CURA Youth Strengths Conference wrapped up on July 25th, after three days of inspiring and informative presentations, performances and sessions.
Our sold-out conference was attended by 241 delegates who came from across Canada, the U.S. and countries including Australia, Ireland, India and South Africa.
AT-CURA would like to thank those involved for their contributions to this conference and to the project. The conference delegates represented a wide range of society: academic researchers, front-line youth workers, policy-makers, police, parents, teachers, youth, students and service providers. There were 80 presenters, five keynote speakers, five concurrent sessions, five interactive youth workshops, three plenary sessions, an evening community forum and a special event celebrating AT-CURA.
The conference has further facilitated relationships between many community organizations and individuals that share an interest in reducing youth violence and building resilience, and it is our intention that these community groups and members will continue to work together to make further progress on these goals.
The conference received extensive media coverage, which included television spots, radio interviews, and news articles.
