Join us for this virtual learning journey for educators and youth development professionals to strengthen their individual and collective capacity to create equity-based learning environments that support the whole child, with a focus on shifting adult practices and systems to better serve youth of color in the Road Map region. 

This symposium includes live plenaries, workshops, and community building sessions (with breaks in between sessions). Most sessions will be recorded and available to registered participants through the month of August. 

Thank you to our sponsors, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and Kaiser Permanente; this event would not be possible without their generous support! Sponsored by Seattle Public Schools for Washington State Clock Hours and in partnership with School’s Out Washington to offer STARS Credits to eligible attendees.
