Conference Development

We enjoy helping you find the best speakers, innovative content and engaging sessions for your conferences and meetings. Here are some examples of work we’ve done:

The Bridge Conference

the equity-focused out-of-school time conference

 

In 2014, School’s Out Washington (SOWA) had staff transitions and needed support to curate content for their annual conference, The Bridge from School to Afterschool and Back. We were thrilled to help and have been collaborating with SOWA ever since to vision, curate sessions and execute a high impact regional conference each October.

The result: Bridge is nationally known as the equity-focused conference in our field, bringing inspirational and educational sessions to about 500-600 afterschool and youth development leaders from the Northwest region and beyond.

National Leadership Convening

setting the agenda to professionalize the field of afterschool

The National AfterSchool Association was looking for ways to pump up their offerings for afterschool leaders at the NAA Annual Convention. We worked with them to find out what field leaders urgently needed to discuss and then planned a slate of special invitation sessions. As part of that, we facilitated a meeting of about 50 field leaders that surfaced the professional development needs in the field.

The result: We wrote this report, Creating a Culture of Professionalization in AfterSchool, to tee up future support for afterschool staff and leaders to get the PD they need.
