Each year, the Utah Association of Youth Councils hosts several leadership meetings for youth councils across the state.

Leadership Conference at Utah State University

  • When: Spring; multi-day event
  • Who: All Utah youth councils
  • What: Youth councils gather for training, collaboration, service, and fun! We have great speakers and other events, as well as lots of opportunities to get to meet new people.

New in 2019: We are holding two separate conferences to accommodate all the councils. Both sessions will be held at Utah State University: the first will be March 7-9, and the second will be March 14-16. Each conference will be filled on a first come, first serve basis. Please see this post for more information: Conference Update!

Advisor Training

  • When: Fall; half day
  • Who: Adult advisors, volunteers, and city council representatives
  • What: Adult advisors will hear tips and tricks for getting started and learn about what has been done in other youth councils. This is also a great time to ask questions and connect with other advisors.
    As needed, more than one may be scheduled each year to accommodate councils in different parts of the state.

The 2018 Advisor Training Meeting is scheduled for Saturday, November 3, and will be held at Centerville City Hall. More information is coming soon, so make sure your advisor contact information is up to date!
