Saturday, APRIL 2, 2016 at Sunnyside High School

FOR INFO & TO VOLUNTEER: 520-991-6781 ♥ facebook.com/youthandpeace

Tucson’s Annual Youth & Peace Conference (YPC) empowers youth as peacemakers and changemakers through skill-building workshops, inspiring speakers & performers, dialogue circles, a resource fair, & art expo. Each year’s conference is organized by a Youth Leadership Team with help provided by an Adult Advisory Team. The youth decide on a theme for the conference and then select speakers, performers, workshops, and special activities that explore, demonstrate, or highlight the theme. Adult advisors handle the logistical end of things and oversee funding and finances for the annual event.

The 2016 YPC Youth Team chose for their title: Expression & Communication: The Art of Preventing Chaos. The conference is intended for youth 12 to 23 years old. Adults who live with or work with youth are welcome. Child care is available. Organizations wishing to participate in the Resource Fair or individuals wishing to volunteer are asked to call Culture of Peace Alliance at 520-991-6781 or email COPA@cultureofpeacealliance.org.

Youth and adults are encouraged to register for this all-day, free event.

(registration is also available at the conference).
