TIDE Wave of Change Conference

The Teenage Identity and Diversity Education (TIDE) Conference is a 3-day event planned and led by high school students of diverse backgrounds. Attendees learn to communicate respectfully and use their skills in discussions about highly-charged issues, fostering bonds and friendships that will continue after the conference.

Conference attendees participate in youth-planned and led workshops, dialogues, and other activities throughout the weekend that allow them to:

  • Discover more about themselves and their own understanding of personal identity
  • Learn about the beliefs and identities of others
  • Make their voices heard at a conference that has been planned by high school students specifically for their peers.

Parents and/or other adults working with youth may attend the conference sessions open to adults throughout the weekend.

Learn all about what we're planning for this year!
