It’s not a secret that there are a lot of challenges facing the youth of today. It’s not often said what we can do about it! I don’t know about you, but there are young people living right here in Grande Prairie that I love and care about. I am excited to share that there’s a conference coming up to deal with some of the issues they’re facing like: sexting, body image, drugs and alcohol, and more!

If you’re a parent, grandparent, teacher, coach, youth leader, or just someone who cares about young people in Grande Prairie, we hope to see you there!

Please pre-register for the conference!
