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. It’s just another way we help make yearbook special for you and your students.
