Service Provider Fair


The 29th Annual Conference on Youth, to be held Thursday, October 4, 2018, at the Allen County War Memorial Coliseum, 4000 Parnell Avenue, Fort Wayne, Indiana 46805,  includes a Service Provider Fair.   Space is limited. Agencies and organizations who provide services or support to children and families, and who implement in their services and products the 40 Developmental Assets and positive youth development principles for the enhancement of the lives of all children are invited to apply. Applicants will be reviewed by the Great KIDS Advisory Board for consideration and notified in due course.

We regularly receive feedback from our conference participants that the Service Provider Fair is a valuable part of the networking that happens during our conference, and allows them to learn about the myriad of services available to Allen County youth and families.

Basic Service Provider Fair Registration of $65 includes: 

  • Conference Admission, Breakfast and Lunch for ONE Booth Representative (2nd Representative may be added for an additional fee)
  • One 8-foot skirted display table with two chairs
  • One conference registration packet
  • One Parking pass per booth (pick up with registration materials during set-up times)

Additional options include:

  • Electricity
  • CEU’s
  • Conference sponsorship opportunities (CONTACT Great KIDS for more information)

We would like your agency to consider which of the 40 Developmental Assets are built through the relationships of your staff/volunteers with your clients and the programming offered. If at all possible, we would like you to display the Assets you are building somewhere on your booth, and discuss them with conference participants.  Would you like to learn more about the Assets?  CLICK HERE Great KIDS is able to assist in this identification process if necessary – contact us.
