Schedule | 2021 YDSA Convention

We are hard at work developing workshops, trainings and delegate blocks for this year’s convention. This schedule is subject to changes, some content may be added or removed as we get closer to the convention. The final schedule must also be approved by delegates on the first day of the convention, so changes may be made up until then.
