2. 2018 Youth Conference Was a Success

Our 2018 Youth Conference took place on August 9th and we had 27 students take part in the business plan competition. Eight teams competed during the day-long event to find who could come up with the best business plan. We would like to thank all of the sponsors, volunteers, speakers and students who helped make it happen. To view our photo gallery of the event, click HERE.
