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.”

“Of the hundreds of educator conferences I’ve attended over the past several years, those put on by National Center for Youth Issues rank at the very top of the list when it comes to quality and relevance. 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.”
