For our 2011 event, there are certain talks and moments that stand out. Definitely a feeling of courage among the youth - courage to do something scary, courage to discuss a hard topic, courage to be vulnerable. It was an emotional day and one that made all of us (even those who can’t call ourselves youth anymore by calendar standards) feel young and alive. This year, we have chosen three youth interns who have been helping plan the event and will be taking major roles in executing the event, including stage management and social media. Our focus is really on the sense of community and on creativity. We all feel like we can use more of both and why not engage youth in that direction.
