We are inviting high schools and youth programs in Tucson and Southern Arizona to register a select group of their students/youth (10-20 students per school/site) to participate in the 12th Annual Youth and Peace Conference! This year’s conference is being presented on Friday, September 22, 2023 from 8:30am to 2:15pm at Pima Community College West Campus.

The 2023 YPC Youth Leadership Team decided to focus the year’s conference on Empathy: The Key to Humanizing and Uniting Our Communities and addressing these themes:

  1. Centering Empathy  

  2. Destigmatizing Mental/Behavioral Health

  3. Self Care for Wellbeing

  4. Isolation and Social Media

Workshops, dialogue circle conversations, and opening and closing ceremonies designed by the Youth Leadership Team will highlight these issues and provide multiple opportunities for participating youth to gain important information and share their viewpoints and perspectives.
