Register Now for the 14th Annual PCC Conference

Join us for the 2022 Michigan Pre-College and Youth Outreach Conference on October 21, 2022, at Grand Valley State University in Grand Rapids, MI!

This past year has certainly been challenging for educators and learners alike, but there is hope in the future, and we want to celebrate each other through this year’s theme: Mind the Gap: Building Bridges for Bouncing Back! We plan to have a variety of presentation formats and workshops, along with some wonderful invited guests. We will announce the official keynote speaker soon, so stay tuned!
