Together we hope to explore issues of social justice and sustainable development, meet frontline grassroots workers from India as well as Houston, and have fun meeting others who care about making a difference in the world.
Time to reconnect with old friends and to make new friends. Families attending AID conference AND youth conference may register for BOTH using the combined registration form available at conference.aidindia.org
Those attending ONLY the Peace, Justice and You(th) conference please complete this form.
Youth attending the conference will have the opportunity to complete one project reflecting their understanding of an effective approach to solving a problem communities face. They may prepare an article, photo essay, interview, skit, video, or artwork to be presented at the conference and published on the AID website and related media. Youth will have the opportunity to ask questions of volunteers and full time workers of AID to learn more about the topic to their choice and prepare their presentation.
Youth who complete the project are eligible for volunteer hours for attending the conference.
Registration fee: $50 covers conference sessions and lunch on both days.
Travel fellowships are available for youth attending from out of town. Accommodations are available for youth attending along with a parent or guardian who is registered for the AID conference. For local youth, parents are responsible for transportation to and from the conference venue.
Registration deadline for those requesting campus accommodation: March 31.
Youth interested in volunteering in advance in the planning of the conference may apply to be a youth representative.
