Affordable CEUs

Youth at Risk offers CEUs to all attendees and the cost of these are not included in the registration fee. Your donation of $10 will help us to continue to offer CEUs at no cost to the attendee and allow us to attract a diverse audience through the CEU offerings (NLN, EEC, NASW, LMHC, LMFT, CPCS).


Self Care

Self Care is an important practice for professionals serving youth at risk. Your donation of $25 will help us to continue to offer self care training to the community by hearing local young artists, being provided with meals and refreshments throughout the day, and being surrounded by professionals all committed to the same mission.


Networking Opportunities

Collaborative networking is an important tool in this field. Your gift of $50 will help to support future networking opportunities by allowing us to offer non-profit organizations a free avenue to share about their resources and programming in our Exhibition Hall. The information sharing directly supports the children and families we serve.


Community Impact

Youth at Risk is the only conference of its kind in the Northeast United States. It is our goal to keep the costs of the conference low in order to make it accessible to hardworking professionals. As with most events, the registration fee is lower than the actual cost per person. Your donation of $100 will help us to continue to support professionals serving the Youth at Risk of Massachusetts.
