The Michigan Adolescent Pregnancy and Parenting Program (MI-APPP) and the Michigan Organization on Adolescent Sexual Health (MOASH) invite you to submit an application to lead a breakout session at the 3rd annual YouTHRIVE Teen Parent Summit! We are looking for engaging, interactive workshops to add to the summit. This year's summit will be on Friday, May 15 at Lansing Community College. The full day will run approx. 9am-3pm; we are still working out when in that time frame we will be offering these breakout sessions.

What is YouTHRIVE?

YouTHRIVE Teen Parent Summit is an annual, statewide learning and networking event, geared toward expectant and parenting youth (under 21). The goal is to provide a fun day where young parents from across Michigan can meet up with each other and be inspired and encouraged to pursue their personal goals while building happy, healthy, and thriving families. This FREE summit features hands-on learning opportunities, breakout sessions, inspiring panels of former teen parents, food and games/activities, campus tours, on-site student financial aid support, resource tables, and freebies, prizes, and giveaways.
