Join us this spring at the College of St. Benedict in St. Joseph, Minnesota for the Young Authors Young Artists Conference (YAYA). 

This conference is designed to introduce third through sixth-grade students to a variety of creative and artistic activities. YAYA will foster and grow students’ love of creative writing and illustration through an array of break out seasons and an engaging keynote presentation. Resource Training & Solutions works with a variety of creative professionals from across central Minnesota to facilitate student’s creative journey. Students have the opportunity to explore creative fields like journalism, cartooning, animation, poetry, performance arts, songwriting, and publishing.
