Youth Workshops

Youth_Workshop_1.jpg

There are three workshop sessions throughout the day, and many workshops are being presented more than once. Because so many workshops fill up quickly on the day of the conference, it's always a good idea to have your top three workshops from each session planned before the workshops begin.
