In an effort to encourage youth to be fully present during the conference, participants will be expected to only use cell phones in their dorm rooms. Cell phones must remain in participants’ rooms at all times during the conference.
However, we know that some youth need to have a cell phone with them at all times for medical and/or disability-related reasons. If this is the case for your youth, please complete the following form in as much detail as possible. Cell Phone Accommodation Forms will be reviewed on a rolling basis as they are received. The Empower Kentucky Leadership Team will contact you with an update on the status of your form within 5 business days of submission. If your form is approved, the conference coordinator will reach out to create an individualized plan for your youth’s cell phone use during the conference.
