Lean in and Listen

Are you a great presenter? Do you have information to share?

The 2016 Out of School Time Developmental Assets® Conference in October is seeking presenters!

The theme is Youth Voice: Lean in & Listen

We encourage you to share your wisdom and experience by presenting at the 2016 OST Asset Conference.

The conference theme focuses on how we can strengthen young people to use their voice; and strengthen the rest of the community to hear youth and support them.

We plan to offer an excellent variety of workshops, and will also offer attendees an opportunity to hear directly from, and engage with, youth on a different topics at youth panels throughout the day.

We seek workshop presenters (adult and youth) & youth panelists who are able to share real-world successes and struggles in engaging young people in real and relevant ways.

Workshop sessions are facilitator-led and are designed to share successful strategies, practices, and ideas that participants can take and use in their work with youth. They can be led by youth and/or adults. 

Youth Panel sessions are designed to foster open discussion between youth panelists and the audience. Panels are youth-led and based on a specific topic area.
