2024 Silent Auction

Each year at the International Conference, AEE holds a silent auction to raise funds for granting conference scholarships. A scholarship to the AEE International Conference provides a motivated individual with a chance to connect one-on-one with hundreds of fellow EE peers, instructors, and potential mentors - all in one place. 

Showcasing your product/service to potential customers/clients is as simple as making a tax deductible donation to our silent auction. Gain exposure for your business by having your product/service on display in this year’s silent auction!

Leonie du Preez's Story 

“I am Leonie du Preez from Pretoria, South Africa. I am passionate about youth and holistic youth development. My company called Gro Life Coaching focus on Holistic youth development. We help youth to reach their full potential in four areas, namely body, mind, soul and spirit. We believe that if you understand, maintain and develop all areas of your life, you will reach your full potential.

Getting the 2023 Conference scholarship was the greatest gift after the pandemic. It was a great pleasure to travel, and to see and meet like-minded people who love nature and people. It was like family to share ideas and methodologies that can really help the youth who are challenged in so many areas, especially mental wellness. If not for the scholarship I would not have been there in person. It is unfortunately a very far trip. But the scholarship gave me the opportunity to travel to the USA.”

Donations are tax deductible.
