Bridge Conference 2017
The premier conference for expanded learning professionals in the Pacific Northwest is returning to the University of Washington October 16 & 17, 2017!
Our theme this year is Together We Rise. What does it take for young people to thrive? Creating inclusive environments for young people goes beyond offering fun enrichment and quality academic supports. Young people also need places where they can heal wounds created by exclusion and inequity. Young people need tools and supports to empower them to become change agents.
Together We Rise means programs, communities and families work together to advocate for inclusive programs. We will ensure young people are not just resilient, but are self-aware; not just leaders, but thoughtful individuals invested in their futures and the future of their communities. Highlighted sessions include community organizing, engaging families, being a change agent within our programs and communities.
