2009 Summer Youth Leadership Conference
Over 250 youth grantmakers and their adult advisors from Michigan and around the nation gathered at Michigan State University for this exciting three-day educational conference planned and facilitated by the Michigan Community Foundations' Youth Project (MCFYP) Committee. Our 2009 theme was "A Second Look: Seeing Challenges as Opportunities". Sessions and speakers focused on how youth leaders can turn these difficult times into new opportunities through grantmaking and community service.
