2020 Conference Cancelled


     The Sariling Gawa Youth Council Board of Directors regretfully announces that the 40th Annual Sariling Gawa Youth Conference will not be rescheduled this year amid the evolving and rapid developments related to the COVID-19 pandemic, and the enormous uncertainty of its containment. To participants who submitted the conference registration fee, we will contact you personally regarding your refund.

     With great optimism, we have tentatively scheduled the next 3-day conference on March 18-20, 2021. We ask you to help us spread the word about it and hope to see you there!

     In the meantime, we are considering alternate youth and alumni activities to be conducted toward the end of this year with hopes that the COVID-19 situation will be under control by then. Also, we will continue to plan for the 40th anniversary reunion tentatively scheduled on Saturday, October 10, 2020 and will share details as it nears. Please continue to check this site for updates.

     For any questions, concerns, and/or comments, please contact Geordan Arenal, Board Vice President, at geordan.arenal@sarilinggawa.org or (707) 246-4058.

     We sincerely appreciate your interest in the Sariling Gawa Youth Conference, and thank you for your understanding and patience as we navigate through these unpredictable times. Please practice every precaution to stay healthy for yourself and your loved ones.

With our deepest respect and gratitude,
The Board of Directors of Sariling Gawa Youth Council
