Call for Proposals – 2021 Pre-College & Youth Outreach Virtual Conference

The time has come! The Michigan Pre-College & Youth Conference 2021 is now accepting proposals!

We are seeking proposals that address some of the current challenges in pre-college and youth outreach. Proposals will be organized into the following tracks:

 –> Rebuilding Pre-College Programs: Laying a Strong Foundation for Students

–> Student Voices

–> Youth Mental Health and Wellness

–> Building Engagement & Encouraging Community in Online Programming

Importantly, these tracks are broad descriptions, and if you have even the slightest inclination to share anything related to pre-college and youth outreach with a broader audience, we encourage you to submit a proposal using the Proposal Submission Form!

Similar to last year, we will be utilizing a variety of formats during this year’s conference:

–> Presentations (25 minutes) – A typical conference “talk”. Plan for 20 minutes of presentation and 5 minutes of Q & A. Does not need to be interactive but may include audience participation.

–> Workshops (50 minutes) – Must include audience engagement or activity session. Max of 25-minute presentation time, with the remainder of the time for audience participation and activities.

–> Posters (with 3-to-5-minute video) – Videos should explain and expand on content presented in the poster.

*Full descriptions of each track and format are available in the Proposal Submission Form. Check it out!*

More information about registration for the conference will be coming soon, so keep an eye out. Just a quick reminder, the date for the conference is Thursday, October 21st, 2021. You do not want to miss the early bird registration discount!
