Volunteers assemble 400 backpacks for BYU Women's Conference service project

Each spring at the BYU Women's Conference, women from across the world come together with a common goal: to complete works of service that will benefit many humanitarian needs in a variety of countries. It is estimated that more than 17,000 women will end up fulfilling these service needs in the few weeks provided up until and including the actual days of this year's two-day conference on April 28-29.

This is accomplished in a variety of ways. There will be an "Evening of Service" at the conference with various opportunities to work on projects that will benefit both local and worldwide groups.

Other "take-n-make" kits can actually be worked on while attendees listen to the conference and then are returned before the conference ends. Some groups will also begin work on service projects in advance, like sewing hats and scarves for cancer patients or making baby items, toys and other necessities for young children.
