The Steubenville Youth Conference is a three-day experience consisting of music, keynote speakers, small group time, breakout sessions, Mass, Eucharistic Adoration, fellowship, and fun!
The majority of the conference takes place in a large-group setting, but teens will also spend time in small groups of 7-8 people of the same gender with at least one adult leader. Some groups may also have a high school-aged junior leader.
Youth participating with their parish youth ministry will meet in small groups together. If youth are not participating with a parish, they will be placed in a small group with youth from other area parishes.
Incoming freshmen to graduating seniors are eligible to attend Steubenville Conference.
Registration takes place through parish groups.
Youth Fee: $345.00

Scholarships are available directly through the Steubenville Mid-America Conference. The application is not yet available online.
Scholarships given by the Archdiocese of Omaha have new criteria based on the Archdiocesan Vision & Priorities. This year priority will be given to first year teen participants and Franciscan LEAD applicants. Unfortunately, the Archdiocese cannot guarantee a scholarship to everyone who applies, regardless of financial need.
