The Youth Conference, known by the English acronym SOY (Strength Of Youth) will be held in the month of July with the participation of youth and leaders from Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic and Barbados.

The motto for this year is 'If ye love me, keep my commandments' (John 14:15).

In Puerto Rico, the conference will take place at the Yuquibo facility and will involve 177 young men and women, and 65 counselors.

In the Dominican Republic, the conferences will be held in the Bonao Camp site and will have the participation of 1,500 young men and women, and 388 counselors.
