Gather with us May 30 - June 1 to share, strategize, and connect. In the only convening of this type focused on peer-to-peer learning, we'll explore how to develop community-wide solutions with young people and leaders from across communities.

Join forward-thinking leaders - intermediary leaders, community providers, non-profit partners, school district representatives, policymakers, funders, youth, researchers, and more - to make some waves!

At the Every Hour Counts National Conference, you will:

  • Get Inspired. Participants will share stories and seek advice with local system leaders who represent a diverse range of perspectives. In interactive sessions with passionate speakers, you’ll encounter illuminating perspectives to inform policy and practice in your communities.
