YouthBuild USA Transformation Institute – POSTPONED

July 26 – 28, 2011, in New Orleans, LA


It is with sadness that we are announcing today that the Transformation Institute has been POSTPONED.  Unfortunately we were not able to achieve the registration numbers necessary to hold this amazing event.  Given the current funding challenges programs are experiencing we want to ensure to offer this robust list of topics and courses at a later date when more program staff are able to attend.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you and your program.  We hope you will be able to join us when we offer this conference in 2012.

Thank you for your understanding and support.
