The Help Group’s Advance LA will host its Third Annual Day for Young Adults on Saturday, July 18th at American Jewish University. This one-of-a-kind event designed specifically for teens and young adults features interactive workshops that provide attendees with the opportunity to practice new skills and interact with peers while learning transition skills, sparking passions and cultivating new relationships.
“This year, our Day for Young Adults will kick off with one of our most popular activities – Speed Friending,” explains Advance LA Director Jill Rosenberg. “Attendees will have 3-4 minutes to introduce themselves to someone and get to know each other through icebreakers and conversation topics we provide before rotating to the next person. Speed friending is a fun way for our attendees to start the day by making connections in a low-pressure, accepting environment.”
After Speed Friending, the young adults move on to attend workshops. This year’s Day for Young Adults includes 18 different workshops on a wide range of topics, including choosing a college, self-advocacy and working in the gaming industry. The day will also provide participants with the chance to learn new skills such as mindful awareness through yoga, building computer circuits and time management. Space is limited in the workshops, so attendees are encouraged to register early to secure spots in their first-choice workshops.
As in previous years, the Day for Young Adults will end with an ice cream social and dance party. The party offers attendees the chance to have fun with new friends and cap off a wonderful day.
The registration rate of $95 includes all workshops, related materials, and lunch. American Jewish University is located at 15600 Mulholland Drive, Los Angeles, CA 90077. Complimentary event parking is provided onsite.
Please note: Teens and young adults should have the necessary skills to attend this conference independently without a parent or one-to-one supervision. Most attendees are between the ages of 18 and 30.
