Hosted by the Daniel Kids Foundation
Daniel’s mission is to provide quality services for youth and families. One way we do that is by helping professionals, clients, and their respective organizations establish and maintain effective Independent Living Programs. Now in its 27th year, Daniel’s National Independent Living Conference, Growing Pains, is a must-attend event for youth service professionals, independent living professionals, and youth aged 15 and up.
Growing Pains presenters include experts in the field of independent living who lead training sessions, workshops, panel discussions, and leadership and team building activities dedicated to the needs of youth who are currently in care. Each general session and workshop offers innovative ideas on how youth can adapt to life’s ever-changing situations and be properly guided to become competent, responsible, independent adults. For conference attendees seeking extra training, plan to attend pre-conference institutes prior to the conference general session.
The Maryland Resource Parent Association is hosting two Resource Parent Conferences this year, the first on Saturday, March 8, 2014 at Chesapeake College, Wye Mills, MD. The second is on Saturday, October 11, 2014 at the Maritime Institute, Linthicum, MD. Both events run from 7:30 AM to 4:00 PM.
