CLE 21:6 FAQs

  • Who Can Go?

    • CLE 21:6 is a conference for high school youth. All youth must be in 9th-12th grade during the 2021-2022 school year to attend as a youth participant with their adult chaperones.
  • How Do I Buy Tickets?

    • Teens must attend with a parish or school group, and cannot buy tickets individually. 
    • Youth ministers, campus ministers, and parish group leaders can buy tickets for their group on this website starting September 1.  You will not need names of individuals until November.
  • What if My Parish and/or Catholic High School Isn't Going?

    • Have your parent/guardian email Francine Costantini and we will work to find you a group with whom you can attend. 
  • What About Liability Forms? 'Cause I Know They Are Coming!

    • An email will be sent to the group leaders in November with a link to sign your teens & chaperones up for the event.  It will include a link to online liability & medical forms to send to parents.  Online forms are due December 1.  (So that is the deadline for knowing the names of all attending!)
  • Teen : Chaperone Ratio

    • Groups need to have 2 adults for the first 10 teens, and 1 adult for every 8 teens after that.  E.g.:
      • 7 teens + 2 adults
      • 10 teens + 2 adults
      • 15 teens + 3 adults
      • 20 teens + 4 adults
      • 27 teens + 5 adults
  • Who Qualifies As a Chaperone?

    • Chaperones must be at least 21-years-old, and have completed all safe environment requirements for the Catholic Diocese of Cleveland.
  • Do Adults Need Tickets to Attend?

    • Yes.  There will also be a liability & medical form for chaperones to complete in November.
  • How Much?

    • CLE 21:6 is $35 per person, which covers the cost of the conference, as well as lunch and dinner.
  • Are There Scholarships Available?

    • Yes.  Scholarships will be available for underserved populations.  Details will be online by September 15.
