The Power Within Youth and Family Conference

About the project

This conference was established to be a bridge between school and the summer. It offers teambuilding activities, prevention, motivational and educational workshops. This conference hangs on the quote of Marianne Williamson:

You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others."

Actually, who are you not to be?

What is Our Deepest Fear?

You Really Can Make It If You Try

"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?

You can't be beaten at anything, until you quit in your own mind. There is no failure except in your not putting forth your best effort. There is no defeat except from WITHIN.

The POWER is WITHIN!

Thank you for being a part of making a difference in our youth’s future. For more information, you may contact us at, youthelp@gmail.com
