We are pleased to announce the opening of school registrations for the 11th Annual Youth & Peace Conference (YPC), taking place in person on Friday, October 28, 2022 from 8:00 AM to 1:30 PM at the Pima Community College West Campus. All registrations for this event are free.

Conference Themes & Title: Cultivating a Nourishing Relationship with the Inner You

The 2022 YPC Youth Leadership Team chose to focus this year’s conference on these three themes:

  • Mental Health & Well-Being

  • Self-care

  • Impact of Social Media/Cultural Messaging on Mental Health & Well-being


Conference Logistics

  • Registration is open to young people ages 12 to 24, with a special focus on high school students.

  • To maximize the participatory nature of this youth-led conference, we are limiting registration for the 2022 YPC to 350 students. To help diversify the participation of district and charter high schools, we strongly recommend that schools register no more than 20 students.

  • Schools are encouraged to allow students to explore their individual interests by selecting their own workshops. However, we understand if schools decide to restrict workshop selections to ensure direct oversight from their chaperones. 

  • A conference photographer will be taking photos. Please consider whether you need to add anything to your internal permission slips with regard to photography/media release.


Conference Workshops

Twelve (12) 1-hour workshops will be offered during the 2022 Youth & Peace Conference. Attendees will have the opportunity to select a workshop that interests them. On the registration form, you are asked to indicate a first choice and second choice workshop for each student you are registering. Workshop placement is on a first-come-first-served basis. A monitor will be assigned to each workshop. Monitors will have a list of who has registered for their workshop and will be tracking attendance. View Workshop Descriptions here. 


Registration Deadline

School registration opens Monday, September 26th and closes Monday, October 24, 2022.
