Nearly 50% of the world's population is under age 30, the majority of whom live in developing countries. Join us to learn and discuss how to reach youth on issues ranging from HIV, family planning, body literacy, child marriage, and living in humanitarian settings. We will discuss: How can Christian organizations and churches better reach youth and help them thrive? What can we learn so we can strengthen our programs? Participants will take away concrete ideas on how to enhance their youth and health efforts.
