We have often heard from advisers that their yearbook staffers can’t take 4-5 days to go to workshop and can’t afford the cost of a traditional summer yearbook workshop... so this is our alternative. As you can see by the schedule, you will accomplish just as much but in a shorter amount of time. We are very pleased to have some of the best yearbook advisers in the country teaching and guiding your staff. This workshop is designed for your yearbook leaders, not the entire staff. We ask that you bring no more than 8 leaders.
Now that you know why you should attend...
