  • What if we had a youth conference that was for both Baha’is and non-Baha’is?
  • What if we had a youth conference where the focus was not on listening to a series of “big-name” speakers?
  • What if we had a youth conference where instead of “big-name” musicians coming to entertain, the participants themselves provided the music, edifying songs many of which they were responsible for creating?
  • What if we had a youth conference where the goal of a handful of adult volunteers was to “stay out of the way” so that hundreds of youth could consult together effectively and efficiently?
  • What if we had a youth conference where instead of most of the time being spent in plenary session, most was spent in small and medium working groups addressing how to build community in specific neighborhoods they have chosen to serve?
Hey wait! We just did!!
