The Annual Youth & Peace Conference
Tucson’s Annual Youth & Peace Conference (YPC) started in 2011 as a collaborative, community-based, peace-building, youth leadership and violence prevention project. YPC goals include educating and empowering youth to make healthy life choices and gain effective tools to become leaders, practice nonviolence, build peace and strengthen social justice.  The Youth & Peace Conference prioritizes youth leadership in planning and presenting this annual event.
See below for more information about the Youth and Peace Conference and a listing of the ten conferences previously held, along with the theme or title selected by youth for that year's event. 
In 2021, as a result of the powerful mission statement created by the 2020 Youth Leadership Team, the Annual Youth and Peace Conference expanded into a year-round peace leadership program called Tucson Youth and Peace (TYP). For information, contact TYP Co-Coordinators Ann Yellott (520-991-6781; or Vana Dee Lewis (520-993-9390;
