Can my Parents or Teachers attend the conference?

There will be a Parents Meeting arranged at a number of schools per city prior to the conference where your parents and/or teachers can get the chance to meet some of the YAC team and ask any questions. We feel it is important to introduce both your parents and teachers to the YAC philosophy.

The aim of our conference is to give the young adults participating the freedom of expression and the opportunity to voice their opinions and ideas on a range of personal and social issues relevant to young people.

Therefore, as the conference is young adult -inspired and -led, supported by  the professional YAC Team, it has been specifically designed to be a safe space where they can be themselves without the more formal surroundings of school or parent-child relations.

However, the YAC Team would be very happy to meet parents at both registration and pick-up. if necessary, teachers are welcome to book a room at the Pefkos Hotel (at their own or the school’s discretion) to act as additional support.
