2017 International Youth Worker Symposium on the Sea


What are you doing November 8-15, 2017? I have a great idea for something you might just want to put on your calendar right now!

It’s the International Youth Worker Symposium on the Sea at a fantastic Iberostar Beach Resort in Playa Paraiso, Mexico.

It’s only $600 (pp for double room – for Journey Fellows) and $800 for all other youth workers.

This includes:

  • A week long symposium filled with rich conversations and engaging sessions on important topics for the field of youth development

  • A youth worker study tour to meet the Youth Workers from the region and learn about the issues facing young people in this area

  • A great room on the ocean for you and a friend/family member or colleague (yes you can bring family and friends)

  • All your food/drinks for the week (including taxes and tips)

  • Your transportation from the Cancun airport.

All you have to get is your flight to Cancun, Mexico and that’s it!). What a deal, right!

Not to mention the great times connecting with youth workers from all over the world as you have fun, relax and renew in the beautiful Yucatan beaches of Mexico.
