Youth Café


The Virginia Statewide neighborhood Conference Youth Café creates a new phase of learning for youth between the ages of 13-18 years of age with workshops designed specifically to engage, empower, and enlighten them. This year, youth participants will gain an understanding about how to be more socially inclusive and connected to one another, how to graduate from college debt-free, and how to develop effective problem solving and decision-making skills.

While attending the Youth Café, young people will interact with their peers from across the state to learn about what civic, volunteer, and outreach efforts others are undertaking while developing new friendships and relationship along the way.

Youth attending the Virginia Statewide Neighborhood Conference are required to be under adult chaperone supervision at all times.
