Idaho Youth Seminar

Civitan Youth Seminar is a five-day conference sponsored by Adult and Junior Civitan clubs of the Idaho state that emphasizes team building and leadership in an exciting, fun, and meaningful format. Our seminar is an opportunity for high school students to learn more about topics relevant to today’s youth through interactive discussion groups led by professionals. We also provide recreational activities including a dance, picnic, talent show, and awesome games. It is a powerful experience that delegates never forget. It also inspires attendees to achieve their dreams or overcome barriers. At the very least delegates will meet new people, learn more about yourself and have fun.
