STATESBORO — Georgia Southern University’s National Youth-At-Risk Center will welcome more than a thousand educators, social workers, community leaders and researchers from across the United States and internationally during the 25th annual National Youth-At-Risk conference March 2-5 at the Hyatt Regency in Savannah.
“This is such an important conference because it not only looks at what risks today’s youth face, but also presents proactive solutions and best practices for meeting these serious challenges,” said Thomas Koballa, dean of the College of Education, which houses the NYAR Center and sponsors the conference along with the Division of Continuing Education.
Speakers and workshops will examine such issues as school violence, poverty, learning difficulties, underachievement, bullying and dysfunctional families.
