2021 Virtual Kansas Youth Community Change Conference (KYC3)
All Clay County middle and high school youth are encouraged to make plans to attend the FREE 2021 Virtual Kansas Youth Community Change Conference (KYC3). They will be hosting a slate of virtual sessions this summer June 1st-15th. Signing up for even just ONE session will earn you some KYC3 swag signing up for more is even better! They will be drawing for great prizes throughout the conference as well.
Clay County is so proud of two students who attended this event last year and then were accepted as part of the Kansas Youth Connect team who will be hosting this student-led event. Russell, senior at CCCHS, was a co-leader for the planning committee and Mattison, a sophomore at CCCHS, contributed as part of the leadership group.
The Kansas Youth Community Change Conference (KYC3) is an action-packed virtual event open to all middle and high school aged youth. Through interactive sessions and high energy activities, you’ll expand your leadership skills, engage with other youth across the state, and take action to promote positive change in your community!
