Our friends at School’s Out Washington are hosting their 10th annual Bridge Conference: The Bridge From School to Afterschool and Back. This two-day conference is a great opportunity to join in a dialogue with a spectrum of people working with and on behalf of youth. The Conference focuses on research, cutting-edge resources and strategies relevant to strengthening the services that youth (in grades K-12) receive both in and out of school. This year’s Bridge Conference will focus on empowering youth voices.
Keynote speakers will be:
- Mr. Jakada Imani, Executive Director, Ella Baker Center for Human Rights, addressing the voices of incarcerated youth and the inequalities in the justice system.
- A live episode of “Please Speak Freely” hosted by Eric Gurna, Executive Director, Development Without Limits.
The conference will be held October 8-9, 2012 in Seattle. To register or learn more, visit the Bridge Conference page.
