Youth LEAD’s annual Teenage Identity and Diversity Education (TIDE) Conference, is held over Memorial Day Weekend each year at a Boston area university. The conference is planned and led by fifty high school students of diverse backgrounds.

Here’s what’s in store for TEENS at TIDE 2015:

  • Learn new ways to talk about highly charged “hot topics”.

  • Participate in workshops, dialogues, and other activities throughout the weekend and even lead your own! (go to www.youthleadonline.org to learn how to submit a proposal to run a workshop).

  • Make lasting friendships with teens from all over the country.

  • Leave TIDE ready to create change in your community.

Here’s what’s in store for SUPPORTING ADULTS at TIDE 2015:

  • Get inspired and learn new ways to support youth-run dialogues and events that create inclusive community.

Conference attendees participate in workshops, dialogues, and other activities throughout the weekend that have been planned by high school students specifically for their peers. Adults working with teens can attend a parallel but separate adult track at the conference.

If you have a group of high school students (classes of 2015-2018) that are interested in the opportunity to attend this conference or if you are interested in attending the conference as an adult participant, please register today. For more information, please send questions to tide@youthleadonline.org. For information on scholarships, please contact julie@youthleadonline.org.

This year, we highly encourage you to present a workshop at TIDE on the good work you are doing within your community. We want to learn from you! Request for proposals (RFP) will be shared upon request. Submission deadline is April 1st. Please email tide@youthleadonline.org if you are interested in doing a workshop.

In the meantime, feel free to check out our website For More Information about the conference as it becomes available. Check out these reflections from TIDE participants last year.

 If you are in Boston or Providence area and would like us to come visit to give a presentation about TIDE, please contact our Recruitment Chair at tide@youthleadonline.org and we would be happy to come meet with you!
