World Vision 2020 Youth Conference

Join us for New Zealand's ultimate international leadership event. World Vision's Youth Conference empowers secondary school students to advocate for and lead social change in their local and global communities.

A jam-packed day designed to spark a passion for justice and equality in young Kiwis, equipping them with the leadership tools they need to go out and create the world they want to live in. 

This interactive and inspiring conference mobilises young leaders across the country to be strong community advocates and gives them a platform to outwork these skills through the 40 Hour Famine in their schools and communities. It provides an amazing opportunity to connect with like-minded leaders from across the country.

"World Vision Youth Conference simultaneously gave an articulate reflection of our present world as well as a profound vision for the future. For me, I was not only fuelled with the confidence to change the world, but a worthy reason to do so."
- Secondary School student
