What makes an LDSHE Youth Education Conference ?

Rise and shine LDSHE youth! Start your conference day with some spiritual food and a sweet treat. Our 30-minute Devotionals will center around our theme “Trust the Journey”. They are held each morning  from at 8:15 a.m., at the LDS Institute with donuts served afterwards.

After our devotionals, we meet together as a group for our Opening Keynotes:

These speakers bring together life and leadership principles with spiritual applications to help you be your best self.

The balance of our conference days are filled with break-out classes in a variety of topics and styles, with multiple classes offered per hour! See the schedule with more information.

This conference offers two Game Times each day where we run around, play games, and meet new friends. We also have yummy snacks for everyone, including those who have dietary restrictions. Could anything be better?

Participants are encouraged to grab their lunch and come hang out with us on the lawn.  This is a great time to get to know other participants in a fun and casual setting.  Sometimes our presenters join us, too, for an informal chance to talk and discuss questions. Bring a lunch from home or grab something on campus.  More information COMING SOON.

Evening Activities

Wednesday May 27, 7-9 p.m. at the Wildcat Theater.

Join us for a spectacular show! No matter the talent–music, drama, puppet shows, or stand up–each of us have a little spark to share. We’re excited to see what you’ll bring!

Watch or join fellow attendees in the wildest show you’ve ever seen. You know the saying: “Go big or go a little less big!”

This show is welcoming to all shapes and sizes, talents and abilities (except pyrotechnics).

The Open Mic after the show is available for that sudden rush of inspiration, so come ready to share.

Not a performer? Not a problem! Come join us to be a part of our fantastic live studio audience!

For those that are participating in the show, a practice run-through will be held on Wednesday during lunch.

Graduating this year? Join us for an intimate, family-centered graduation ceremony.  Each student is allowed to write their graduation comments, and parents hand the diplomas to their children.  This is a meaningful ceremony to mark the transition onto bigger and better things.

LDSHE Graduation will be held after the close of the conference on Friday evening at 7:00 pm and all are welcome. A reception with light refreshments will follow the program.

Cost for graduates is $40, payable on the registration page.

Need To Know

Registration:
Online registration begins March 14th, and runs through May 18th. You can also register at the door, but we only order a few extra t-shirts, etc., so you are not guaranteed to get one.
Check-in on the first day of the conference begins at 8:15 a.m. at the Shepherd Union Conference Center.

Location:
The LDSHE Youth Education Conference is held at Weber State University in Ogden, Utah. Our classes and evening activities will be held in the Shepherd Union building.  Donut Devotionals in the morning will be held at the nearby LDS Institute. 

Also this year extend the fun and stay on campus with your family! For more information click here!

Dress:
Dress is casual, and you will be provided with a conference T-shirt which you may wear any day. Many of the games are physical in nature, so you probably want comfortable footwear. In addition, attendees are encouraged to dress modestly.

“When you are well groomed and modestly dressed, you invite the companionship of the Spirit and you can be a good influence on others” (For the Strength of Youth, 6).

Standards and Behavior:
We expect all attendees to show courtesy and respect to other participants, speakers, and chaperones.

Cell phones are allowed, but we ask that you be respectful of others by not using them for texting, games, conversations, etc. and silencing them during devotionals, classes, or other activities.

The safety of our participants is of highest priority. We ask that participants stay with the group and follow instructions during and between activities. Attendees will have easy access to their parents throughout the conference.

All youth must have a parent who is registered for the LDSHE Conference and who is present at the conference center. No exceptions. In the event of an emergency, the attending parent will be contacted immediately, and the participant will be placed in their care. Parents are responsible for their own youth. LDSHE is not able to chaperone outside of the planned class and daytime activities; we chaperone activities, not individual youth.
