Call for presenters:  UNITY seeks Speed Workshop submissions for Midyear Conference

Are you Interested in presenting at the 2019 UNITY Midyear Conference? We are now accepting submission for our very popular Speed Workshops. Similar to speed dating, presenters speak to groups of 10 participants at a time while youth participants rotate between tables of topics that interest them. This format of “workshopping” is meant to keep your audience engaged and feeling comfortable enough to contribute to the discussion. There is always a high interest for Peer-to-Peer youth-led workshops.

CLICK HERE to submit your workshop idea by November 30, 2018!
