Join us at CYFAR 2023! This year’s event will offer a multidisciplinary blend of sessions, speakers, and presentations focused on maximizing the success of our CYFAR programs. As a participant, you will have the opportunity to learn from a diverse range of experts who have direct experience and proven success in serving the needs of children, youth, and families at risk. In addition, there will be opportunities for networking and learning from other CYFAR programs, meeting with CYFAR coaches, and speaking with program leadership.

The CYFAR PDTA Center encourages all CYFAR-funded project staff to engage in this opportunity to enhance their professional skills as well as the overall capacity of their CYFAR project. Project staff across diverse roles, experiences, and professional backgrounds will find this event valuable and relevant in their continued efforts to positively impact the lives of vulnerable children, youth, and families.

After two days of learning with experts and growing professionally, it is our goal that you will come away with enhanced knowledge and innovative ideas to create change in your communities.
