The goal of the conference is to invite youth leaders from Illinois to learn about trauma and what it means, to learn about resources and ways that youth cope and have hope after trauma, to gain ideas from youth about what is important for adults to know about their experiences, and to have a celebration at the end of the day.

You will learn about various topics including but not limited to:
1.      Trauma- How to cope with and survive after.
2.      Community Violence-  Understanding what resources there are and how to protect yourself
3.      Dating Violence- How to have healthy relationships
4.      Self-Care- How to care for others while still taking care of yourself.
5.      Networking- What other youth organizations are doing and how you can get connected to their work.

The event is being offered at NO COST to participants thanks to the generous sponsorship of the Northwestern University, Illinois Childhood Trauma Coalition, Urban Youth Trauma Center at UIC, and La Rabida Children’s Hospital Chicago Child Trauma Center.  This event was organized by La Rabida Children’s Hospital’s Chi-Town Youth Voices, a group whose main focus is about helping youth cope with life after trauma.

Snacks, Lunch, and Dinner will be provided.
