The availability of live conferences will be determined by health and safety considerations. At the current time no live conferences are planned.

Each member district may select up to five remote in-service training workshops. On site workshops may be held at the school or community site if health and safety conditions permit as mutally agreed upon by MPY and the requesting school. These trainings are available for staff, students and community members. MPY provides schools, law enforcement, and other community stakeholders with the strategies and skills necessary to help youth and their families. MPY offers workshops on a variety of topics including Internet safety, substance abuse prevention, restorative justice, anxiety, healthy teen relationships, and youth suicide prevention. Please see our In-Services page for more information.
Most importantly, membership in MPY fosters partnerships to find long-term solutions to the social and legal issues faced by youth in our schools and communities. Together, we proactively confront health and safety issues with our youth.
