Project Skills Showcase

EQUIP attendees with new resources and skills at the Project Skills Showcase!

The bottom line is that EVERYONE wants FRESH ideas to engage youth in active learning. The Project Skills Showcase is designed to provide all participants with a broad range of research-based, high-quality, interesting, and diverse project ideas to enhance youth engagement and programming at the local level.  

The Showcase is designed for exhibitors to share new project ideas and resources with all of the attendees at the retreat, not just those who sign up for their workshop. The Showcases's exhibit environment allows you to roam and stop by the different booths to learn and practice the skills necessary to put what you learn into practice with the youth you work with.  

Feel free to linger at one location or blast through a bunch...
