The Kansas Youth Community Change Conference (KYC3) is back for another year as a virtual event with evening sessions taking place June 1-15, 2021. The free conference is open to all middle and high school aged youth in Kansas.
“We are excited to provide students with another opportunity to enjoy everything that this conference has to offer,” DCCCA CEO Lori Alvarado said. “Our hope is that students will develop an assortment of skills to help engage their community.”
Through interactive sessions and high-energy activities, KYC3 will expand leadership skills, engage youth with new friends across the state, and take action to promote positive change in Kansas communities. Teens who participate in the virtual sessions will receive a variety of prizes.
The event is sponsored by the Kansas Prevention Collaborative which is funded by the Kansas Department of Aging and Disability Services. Youth will be co-presenting with staff from the Kansas Department for Aging and Disability Services, DCCCA, Wichita State University Community Engagement Institute, Kansas Suicide Prevention HQ, Kansas Department of Health and Environment, Kansas State University, Greenbush, and the Kansas Leadership Center.
