Youth First 2013 will take place on Friday, February 1, 2013
at the Riverside Conference Center in Stafford County.
This Year's Theme & Service Project!
The Youth First Partners have decided that this year's Youth First Conference will not have an official 'theme' but the focus will be on trauma and caring for those who have experienced trauma. As with last year's conference, participants will vote for the vendor that has the best display and that vendor will win the covetedYOFI award.
In addition, the Youth First Partners have decided that this year's service project will be a benefit for Safe Harbor Child Advocacy Center. For more information on this great organization, click here, or watch this video. Participants are asked to provide gift cards of any amount to Wal-Mart, Target, Staples, Michael's, or AC-Moore. These gift cards will be place on a 'Giving Tree' that will be placed in the lobby of Safe Harbor CAC.
If you have questions, email Ben Nagle (email@example.com).
What is YOFI?
YOFI has historically been presented to the vendor that makes the best use of the Youth First Theme. The previous year's winner gets to have YOFI next to their vendor table until lunch. The Youth First Partnership will award YOFI based on participant voting. The vendor chosen by participants to have the best display will win!
