2017 COYO Conference

The 2017 COYO Conference was held on February 22-24, 2017 with 410 attendees. Thank you to all of our speakers, award winners and special guests for making the 2017 conference a great success!

Conference feedback:

"It was nice to see a wide range of services that are doing great work with our youth."

"Love the balance between academic, personal and those who have both. While academic research is important, it is equally important that personal experiences are valued. Great speakers, great information."

"Thank you for this wonderful experience. The organization, information, the receptions - everything was wonderful. I can't wait for next year!"
