ROOTED AND THRIVING

Building A Village for Young Professionals

YOUNG PROFESSIONALS SESSIONS

KNOW MORE ABOUT OUR YOUNG PROFESSIONALS EVENTS

Welcome to “Rooted and Thriving,” the Youth Track of the It Takes  Viallage Conference. Happening alongside the conference, the Rooted and Thriving track is specially designed for youth, ages 18 – 40. Here, the seeds of ambition and personal growth are nurtured together, within the diaspora community.  It’s a village we’re building for young professionals who are eager to make their mark on the world while staying grounded in what truly matters.

Here, every workshop, every talk, and every conversation is an opportunity to grow not just as professionals, but as individuals. “Rooted and Thriving” is your platform to explore innovative ideas, challenge yourself, and build lasting relationships with peers who share your passion and drive.

So, welcome to our village of ambitious, driven youth. Together, we’ll learn, grow, and support each other every step of the way. Welcome, and let’s begin this exciting journey together!
