The 2021 Annual Conference hosted by the Indiana Youth Advisory Board was a great success!

It included:

  • Breakout sessions were led by former IYAB members on topics chosen by current IYAB members.
  • A keynote speech from Ángela Quijada-Banks, author of “The Black Foster Youth Handbook,” NAACP Image Award Nominee and CEO of Soulful Liberation and Consciously Melanated Queens
