The University of Tennessee’s Department of Social Work is the force behind the YLA program.
While the Blue Ridge Institute sessions are meeting the YLA team leaders are working with the family members that are 4-13 years old. The leaders are imaginative in planning the YLA activities. During the conference free time BRI members are encouraged to bring the entire family to the planned group activities.
We look forward to see all of the members’ younger leaders for days full of fun!
BRI: is more than just a conference, it’s an experience! It is a week that eliminates the daily grind and creates an atmosphere where members can deepen relationships with each other. It is a community of like-minded people that have fun together! Family is always welcome! Amidst the fun, children ages 4-13 will develop leadership skills at “YLA” our Youth Leadership Academy.
