Young Adult Retreat: November 21 – 22

About the Young Adult Retreat

Since we were not able to gather together for the Young Adult Retreat this past spring, we are excited to roll out some virtual programming this fall to connect and celebrate our young adults living with epilepsy! And what better timing than during National Epilepsy Awareness Month?

Are you a young adult diagnosed with epilepsy between the ages of 18-30? If so, please join us virtually the weekend of November 21st & 22nd for our Virtual Young Adult Retreat. The weekend will include two full days of activities and talks that will be educational, empowering, and filled with fun. Do not miss out on the opportunity to be able to connect with others, learn and reflect from each other, and gain knowledge to enhance your well-being as a young adult. It is FREE to register and attend, so book your spot!

We are also looking for adult mentors who would like to help with the retreat by providing support and encouragement to our young adult participants.


2020 Registration is CLOSED.
