The UNITY Midyear Conference doesn’t have a complete theme. The partial theme reads “I am __________.” All youth participants at the midyear conference will be asked on the first day of the conference to help complete the statement. A variety of suggested theme endings will be shared and then each youth participant will be asked to select one they like the best or to come up with one on their own. The results will be tabulated and at the end of the first day, the theme will be announced.
This is the first time all youth participants at a UNITY Midyear Conference will select a theme on the first day. “This is another example of how UNITY encourages youth to take the lead at an event devoted to youth empowerment. A theme sets the tone for a conference and we want our youth to take ownership of that tone,” said Mary Kim Titla, UNITY’s Executive Director.
If you are attending UNITY’s Midyear Conference, feel free to think about how you might complete the “I am” statement.
