We invite you to join us for 
The Youth Worker Symposium on the Sea
September 6-13, 2020
In September of 2020, The Journey will host the third Youth Worker Symposium on the Sea.

Join us on Princess Cruiseline's Emerald Princess for a 7 night Alaskan cruise, departing from Seattle Washington.  

Join leading nonprofit professionals and other youth workers from around the globe as we gather to reflect upon and improve our practice, deepen our relationships and refresh ourselves as practitioners dedicated to serving young people.

We'd love to have another great turn out of youth workers from around the US and the globe. So, gather your people, offer your workshop, or just invite your colleagues to take a breathtaking cruise through Alaska's glaciers while networking and learning with other cool youth work professionals.

We've negotiated a great cruise rate and are now accepting Symposium registrations! 

This family friendly event is open to all youth workers and traveling companions.
