The purpose of this conference is to:

- Foster resilience and increase protective factors in youth.
Mental Health is a growing concern in our community and we recognize the impact it can have upon students and their families. But we know that healing is possible and resources are available to help youth overcome and achieve their dreams with your assistance. We would like to extend an invitation to your organization to present at this year’s conference.
The breakout sessions for the conference are 90 minutes in length and should be interactive as you are presenting to adolescents. If possible, we would like for you to have at least one co-presenter.

Thank you in advance for your willingness to consider our request as we partner together to assist the youth of DCPS!
