Public symposia

audience listening to presentation

We offer free public symposia and learning events that bring together researchers, policy makers and practitioners to discuss issues in the field of youth development. The goal is to bridge the latest research with implications for youth work practice, programs, policy and public education.

Our current symposium series is dedicated to understanding social and emotional learning and its contribution to closing the achievement and opportunity gaps.
