A Four-Day Event for Kids, Teens, Young Adults & Families
We welcome young burn survivors, their siblings and parents, or children of burn survivors to a unique four-day experience within Phoenix World Burn Congress, run by a collaborative team of experts from around the country.
Programs by Age
Through fun and interactive sessions, Phoenix UBelong engages two groups:
- Phoenix UBelong Youth and Teens, ages 7 to 17 years old

Over four days, participants will build their connections to fellow burn survivors and the burn community, while discovering new tools and resources to guide their personal recovery. Age-appropriate sessions will be offered on a range of issues, including:
- Questions from peers and others
- Changed friendships
- Teasing or bullying
- Growing up with scars
- Looking ahead to dating
Phoenix UBelong Parents
A loved one’s burn injury can cause a range of impacts on individual family members, their relationships with each other, and overall family functioning. Special family-focused programming at Phoenix World Burn Congress addresses the impact of a burn injury on the entire family.
