Materials & Photos From The 2022 PARTNERS Conference

On December 9, 2022, the youth work field of Minneapolis gathered at the University of Minnesota - Twin Cities to network, share tips, and build each other up at the annual PARTNERS with Youth Conference. It was a day full of excitement, exploration, and professional development. We thank all of our planning partners that worked tirelessly to put on the event and to everyone that attended. We hope that you got something out of the PARTNERS Conference and that we'll see you next year!
