JUNE 9 - 12, 2015

2015 Theme To Be Announced!

We believe in the power of young people. Today’s youth are visionaries and go-getters. They have powerful ideas and a unique perspective.

More than a drug prevention program for Idaho teens, IDFY is a way of life—a place for young people to be fully embraced free of labels and stereotypes. With a healthy dose of inspiration, acceptance, and connection, IDFY challenges Idaho teens to embrace a healthy lifestyle and become leaders who actively seek to positively impact their schools, communities, and all of Idaho.

WHAT IS THE IDAHO YOUTH SUMMIT? A 4-day conference for teens. Attendees participate in interactive workshops, are inspired by motivational speakers, and participate in a variety of engaging and inspiring teen-led activities.
