The 14th Annual Jump Start Conference focused on three crucial ways in which afterschool professionals influence youth and each other: Inspire, Connect, and Learn. As afterschool professionals, educators, and leaders, you play a valuable role in inspiring youth and staff to achieve new heights. Connection is key in building new skills and relationships, creating a sense of community and belonging, and aligning out-of-school time with the school day. And of course, learning is a lifelong process, but looking innovatively at how we ourselves learn and how we encourage youth to learn new skills can better prepare youth for the future. Together, we can Inspire, Connect, and Learn!

From the incredible keynote addresses to the insightful breakout sessions; and from the Networking Reception to the exhibit hall, we enjoyed connecting with attendees and hope you found value in the wide variety of topics!
