It is refreshing to know that the educators are supporting these programs. With over 1500 attendees from all over the state of Indiana, all were pleased and gave the IYI team and organizers high marks.
“As the Indiana Youth Institute celebrates its 25th anniversary, we really wanted the 2013 Because Kids Count Conference to be a celebration of the amazing efforts youth workers give every day on behalf of Indiana’s children and youth and I think we accomplished that goal,” said Indiana Youth Institute President and CEO Bill Stanczykiewicz. “We hope they went back to work feeling renewed, refreshed, inspired and equipped with new tools and techniques to help them help children develop into healthy, happy and productive adults.”
