CPYU suggests a three segment Understanding Today’s Youth Culture seminar format. This option works best over the course of a Saturday morning and afternoon and affords participants an investigation of adolescent development, forces in today’s youth culture, and strategies for pointing our vulnerable children in the right direction.
Other formats are available and offered for conferences, seminars, retreats, meetings and community programs. Various combinations of seminar topics are also available, and can be customized to your needs. To discuss schedule variations and honorariums, please contact the CPYU office.
