HERFF JONES EVENTS

Camps and Workshops

There’s nothing better than a YBK Workshop

Recommendations? Local? Regional? National? All of the above, of course. Yearbookers grow by leaps and bounds as a direct result of attending workshops. It’s the exposure to YBK experts from around the country and learning from other amazing yearbook staffers. It’s bouncing ideas off their peers and having those precious lightbulb moments when an idea becomes a plan. It’s all worth it. So, take a look at the camps and workshops provided in your area and sign up to attend the national Herff Jones workshop, either virtually or in-person. It’s just another way we help make yearbook special for you and your students.
