Now in its 13th year, School’s Out’s Bridge Conference is the premier conference for afterschool and youth development professionals in the Northwest. During this year’s conference, participants will explore the big question, What is at the heart of learning? Rather than focusing on getting the “right answer,” educators should develop good questions, support children and youth in the process of learning, and inspire curiosity. The conference will be at the HUB on the University of Washington campus, October 19 and 20. You can learn more about the conference, or you can register now.
