AUGUST 12 - 13, 2021
This year’s MD4Y conference is taking place virtually in the ongoing shadow of the global pandemic known as COVID-19. This unfortunate new reality has forced its way into our collective psyche and caused us to accept and adapt to a “new abnormal” in all we do, especially as we service and support our young people. We have made it this far but are certainly worse for the wear. No one has been unscathed as we have lost loved ones, friends, and colleagues along the way. But we must keep moving forward….
With this backdrop in mind, this year’s conference theme is “Reimagining Resilience.” We invite you in joining us to reimagine how we view resilience, what it signifies and how we measure it. We invite you to take a fresh look at resilience not only from the perspective of the young people you serve, but also their families, your staff, your volunteers, the systems of which we are a part, and finally, you personally. We have learned so much but still have so far to go.
Join us at this year’s MD4Y 2021 as we learn together on the journey to Reimagine Resilience!
