YPM Annual Conferences have typically been events where YPM volunteers and others interested in prison mininstry gather together to hone their skills, share experiences, and learn about ministry-related issues and trends from knowledgeable and highly-respected professionals in the field of criminal justice and rehabilitation.

For years, conferences have been held at the Best Western County Cupboard in Lewisburg, PA near one of the first two institutions in which Yokefellowship started in the 1950’s. The conferences kick-off with  a banquet Friday evening with a special speaker followed by a day filled with speakers and a variety of workshops on Saturday.  For the past several years, YPM leadership has added an “optional” Friday afternoon session for those thirsting for more, and a Friday evening social time for those desiring more time to meet and mingle with other volunteers.
