“NCYI takes relationship building to another level! They make us feel as if we’re a member of their family and go the “extra mile” in servicing our district. When planning large in-service events, they take all our stress away… we simply tell them what we want, and they handle the rest! We 100% recommend NCYI.”

They feature the top presenters in our field, and attendees go away with valuable skills that can immediately be put to use. It’s no wonder so many participate year after year for an enriching experience.”
