2019 Maryland United for Youth Conference
Sunday, November 3 2019, 10:00 AM - Tuesday, November 5 2019, 4:00 PM
7777, Baltimore Avenue, College Park, MD, 20740
Join us for the largest gathering of Maryland youth development professionals convened by MOST Network and Maryland MENTOR. The 2019 Maryland United for Youth Conference is designed to support changemakers to feel unified, supported and inspired. The work of changing the status quo is challenging, making it essential to prioritize connection and personal wellbeing in the process.

In order for the sector to survive and thrive, youth serving organizations and those who support them, must do more to minimize burnout and overworking, and promote collaboration and self-care. It is crucial to the health of our sector and its ability to drive change. The Conference will provide opportunities for resource-sharing, capacity building, connection, reflection and mindfulness to strengthen partnerships to increase our collective impact on the lives of young people in Maryland.
FLS Executive Director Lori Melman and Courageous Queens Founder Lex Morgan will also present at the Conference.
