The LDS Media Talk blog by Larry Richman, had a feature article entitled, "How to Add Family History to an LDS Youth Conference." (Note: the links from the post seem to come out in French) I have heard several references recently to Stakes that have done just that. Many of the activities have been associated with a "Trek" activity, where the youth in the Stake participate in a pioneer reenactment activity. There are a number of useful suggestions in the following LDS.org links.
- Host a Youth Family History Event
- Family History Event Manager Tool
- Family History Youth Conference
- Youth Devotional
- Family History Activities
- Family History Events
- RootsTech Videos
I realize that many Stake Youth Activities are scheduled on an every two-year basis or even longer, so including a family history theme may be a long-term project. I suggest that whenever the planning begins for the next cycle, that the idea of incorporating youth in a family history activity or even having the entire youth conference theme based around family history will become a huge influence for good in the lives of the youth.
