Participating in the Youth/Teen Program

North Star International understands that the experience of youth today is very different than in the past. We want to help bring support resources to everyone including the growing youth membership. Again in 2018 we will be offering a program specifically designed to address the unique needs of same-sex attracted/gay/transgender youth.

Special Guest: Hank Smith

Renowned youth speaker, Hank Smith, will join us with special opening remarks for the youth session.

Who qualifies to attend the Youth/Teen program?

Youth 12 and older are encouraged to attend. Discounted registration is offered. Participants are eligible up until their 19th birthday.

Will youth be offered private workshops specifically designed for them?

We are pleased to be offering a dedicated youth program again in 2018. Youth attendees will participate in some of the Keynote Sessions along with other attendees but have their own workshops developed for them.

Do youth need to attend the conference with their parents?

It is always encouraged to work with your parents to find support and resources. If your parents are not available to attend, a youth may register to attend on their own.

How much does it cost to register as a Youth/Teen attendee?

Youth/Teens are eligible for a discounted registration to the conference. This price is only $95 and will provide a continental breakfast on Friday and lunch on both Friday and Saturday.

What is the schedule for the Youth Program?

Prior to the start of the North Star Conference, there will be a networking social to meet youth who share their common experience.

The Youth program will officially begin on Friday, March 16 at 9:00am and continue through Saturday, March 17 at 5:30pm. Final schedule of events will be emailed personally to each Youth/Teen registration.
