Mission WV will host its annual THINK Conference this Wednesday and Thursday at Glade Springs Resort.

The conference, focused on strategies to improve the lives of West Virginia youth, is geared towards health professionals, social workers, counselors, teachers, nurses, youth-serving professionals, and students studying related fields.

Attendees have the opportunity to learn best practices from experts in their field on topics related to human trafficking, drug trends, suicide prevention, Juuling, STIs, cyber security and more. Conference participants will also get to network with other professionals working with youth. 

“The THINK Conference is a great opportunity for the professionals working with youth in our community to learn what they are facing today, and obtain the resources and skills to prevent high risk behaviors that influence rates of teen pregnancy,” said Jill Gwilt, Director for Mission West Virginia’s THINK Program.

The conference fee is $75 and that includes one full day and one half day of speakers and educational breakout sessions. Meals and refreshments will be served.
