Daniel’s mission is to provide quality services for youth and families. One way they do that is by helping professionals, clients, and their respective organizations establish and maintain effective Independent Living Programs. Now in its 28th year, Daniel’s National Independent Living Conference, Growing Pains, is a must-attend event for youth service professionals, independent living professionals, and youth aged 15 and up.
Growing Pains presenters include experts in the field of independent living who lead training sessions, workshops, panel discussions, and leadership and team building activities dedicated to the needs of youth who are currently in care. Each general session and workshop offers innovative ideas on how youth can adapt to life’s ever-changing situations and be properly guided to become competent, responsible, independent adults.
The “Growing Pains” Conference is endorsed as the official conference of the National Independent Living Association (NILA).
