SOWA's Bridge Conference joins forces with National Summer Learning Association

Join School's Out Washington and the National Summer Learning Association as we present the National Conference on Afterschool & Summer Learning October 24-26, 2016 at the Westin Hotel in downtown Seattle.

This year's conference will bring together the nation’s top thinkers to share and discuss the partnerships, policies and programs that are breaking down traditional notions of when and where learning occurs. The conference theme, Dare to Disrupt: The Pathway to Excellence and Equity in Education will provide a guiding framework as practitioners, policymakers, funders and researchers from across the out-of-school time field share leading ideas and forge a path for the future as we dare to disrupt the role of afterschool and summer in an emerging new learning frontier.
