On Point Hosts National Conference for Youth Development Programs
Chattanooga, Tenn (May 16, 2011)-- What's Next in the youth development field? How can I sustain my program that is so crucial to the positive development of young people? Everyone from executive directors to school administrators and program staff is wondering the same thing. On Point will host the What's Next? National Youth Development Conference in Chattanooga on July 20-22. The What's Next? Conference is designed to broaden participants understanding of the youth development field with a specific focus on community mobilization, organization sustainability, asset building in youth and poverty.
The conference will feature keynote speaker, Ruby Payne, Ph.D., author of A Framework for Understanding Poverty. Payne remarks that,"One of the key issues in America right now is this: "How do you support the under resourced without destroying the resourced?" My session will look at issues that occur in successfully transitioning from the classroom into the work place through the lens of socio-economic class."
Last year's attendees had this to say about the What's Next? Conference:
