The Resilient Kids Conference (affectionately referred to as RKC) is a one-day event for parents and professionals who live and work with young people. It’s a place where Australia’s top parenting experts come together to offer you insights on cutting-edge issues affecting today’s kids and teenagers. If you have never attended RKC, you absolutely must!
To me the most beautiful thing about RKC is seeing hundreds of parents, educators, youth workers, chaplains, counsellors and social workers, stream through the doors in anticipation of an energising and practical time together. By the end of the day their faces are beaming, and so are ours. Each speaker at this event, loves being accessible to a community who deeply care.
RKC was founded in 2016 by Sharon Witt, an educator and author who is still a big champion of this conference. What began as a once only event in Melbourne back in September 2016, soon spread across Australia. Events have sold-out throughout Melbourne, Warrnambool, Launceston, Brisbane and Adelaide. Due to the Global Pandemic in 2021 and 2022, the conference moved online. In 2023 Sharon passed the baton to Michelle Mitchell (and team) who will be leading this conference forward.
Making RKC accessible to all has always been a really important ethos of the conference. For this reason, we are always wanting to partner with our local communities and gather in-kind and financial sponsorship to ensure our tickets prices stay as low as possible. If you are keen for RKC to visit your area, please feel free to contact us here.
If you are planning to join us for our next event – yeah. Bring your friends. Help us spread the word. Together we can make a difference. We can’t wait to meet you! In the meantime, why not join us on social…

What people are saying about our conferences
Thanks so much for offering us this wonderful opportunity to learn, grow, rethink, be shocked and make us feel hope for our youth’s future!
Today I witnessed world class presenters at the Resilient Kids Conference in Brisbane. Not just a conference but an experience. An authentic, common sense and revolutionary approach to parenting and working with children to teens.
