LIVE it up is a two-day conference encouraging and equipping teen youth to be the leaders of tomorrow. Through fun workshops, games, community service and a keynote speaker, you will learn aspects of leadership and what it means to you. Why is leadership important? Because leaders are the people that shape our future with their decisions. This conference will offer a variety of workshops that will teach youth ages 13-18 how to be better leaders and how to make the best decisions. Workshops will also focus on hands-on learning and allow them to learn new skills.
