Youth Conference Draws Hundreds of Young Latter-day Saints

A youth conference held in Adelaide last month drew 300 Latter-day Saint young people aged fourteen to eighteen from South Australia, Victoria, and the Northern Territory. 

The activities were designed to help the participants grow spiritually, physically, and socially.  The gathering was held at St Mark’s College in North Adelaide the week beginning 11 January.

Classes were led by scores of specially trained Church counsellors in their twenties and were designed to help young people choose their path in life with confidence and faith in God.
