YES 2023 is going to Star Island on August 6th-13th!!!
Every year on the serene shores of Star Island, youth ages 16–22 gather for a week of community, catharsis, and self-discovery. We seek to establish an open and welcoming community founded on principles of compassion, curiosity, and consent.
The YES Conference provides an opportunity to forge deeper connections with the people and the world around us on Star, and to reexamine our lives outside of the conference from a new perspective. We hope you will join us for a week of ghost stories, communal singing, late night talks, and much more this summer!
