YIPAFEST …..September 25th
Youth Intervention Programs Association comes together once a year for YIPAFEST to celebrate the Youth Intervention workers and youth serving organizations throughout the state of Minnesota. YIPA has an approach with proven outcomes and documents showing social returns on investments by moving towards youth intervention. Youth Intervention takes the likely consumers of public services and turns them into life-long contributors to the common good. It saves taxpayer dollars, improves public safety and prepares the future labor force keeping it competitive. When our youth thrive, WE ALL WIN!!!
Register for a Day of Fun, Learning and Networking. Small communities, rural and urban come togethering. It will be held at the TIES Event Center in Falcon Heights off Snelling Avenue North from 9:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m.
YIPA does not directly serve youth, rather they serve the Youth Intervention professionals and organizations that do. They organize and mobilize support for Youth Intervention programs. Their mission is simple:
“Ensure that Youth Intervention programs are supported in their communities and they have the resources they need to provide high quality and cost effective intervention services for youth.”
YIPA has more than 220 organizational and 150 individual members throughout Minnesota who are passionate about youth. YIPA FEST is a day full of learning, teaching and networking YIPA FEST builds upon YIPA’s unique ability to bring together Youth Intervention providers from urban, rural and suburban communities. YIPA has always been the place to make new connections, re-connect with old friends and meet industry leaders. YIPA FEST makes it even easier for you to network.
