About the Meeting

YIPA’s Annual Meeting of the Association is your opportunity to unite with youth work professionals who share your passion for the well-being of our young people. Our annual meeting is available to anyone, anywhere, because it’s virtual.

You’ll experience a fun and informative atmosphere and hear from a variety of speakers who’ll share insights and inspiration. You’ll participate in polls and share your ideas and opinions via chat.

You’ll hear about all the ways YIPA works for you. We’ll highlight your benefits of belonging and focus on new ideas we have to help you better meet the needs of the youth you serve. You’ll have a chance to provide input into how YIPA can improve our services for you.

The Youth Intervention Hall of Fame induction ceremony is the highlight of the Annual Meeting of the Association. You’ll hear from this year’s inductees as they share their inspiring stories and passion for their work with youth. This is a really special moment! Join us to feel the pride and joy for yourself.

2020 Highlights

This year’s guest speaker, Rashmi Acharya, generously shared her personal insights about what young people are experiencing and what they need most from youth workers. And this year’s State of the Association update put inspiring members in the spotlight to help us share how the work we do supports you. You can also watch the videos from this year’s award winners on our Youth Intervention Hall of Fame web page. Enjoy!
