The location and host church for the Island Youth Worker Conference (IYWC) is at New Life Church in Duncan, BC on Vancouver Island. 

Island Youth Worker Conference exists to help the full-time youth worker train their volunteer team. We know how hard it is to train and equip your volunteers. That is why we bring in the best teachers, leaders and grizzled veterans in the Youth Work field. We want to assist you in equipping your team through the IYWC. 

This is a day of training with a specific focus on the volunteer youth worker. Our aim is to present high-quality training that any sized team can afford. Packed with inspiration, encouragement and practical coaching.

Each youth worker goes away with skills that apply to the situations they face each week. We see this as the goal of making your team better equipped to share the love of God with the youth of Vancouver Island and beyond.
