15th Annual Jump Start Conference
November 1-2, 2019

Ogden Eccles Conference Center
Ogden, Utah

The 15th Annual Jump Start Conference is a professional learning event for afterschool staff, educators, emerging leaders, and program administrators. Throughout the conference, attendees have opportunities to expand their knowledge of afterschool programming, network with others in the field, and learn new strategies to help improve outcomes for the youth they serve.

As this year marks the 15th Annual Conference, UAN is excited to celebrate the strides we have made as a community in afterschool programming over the last 15 years! With such a strong, established field of afterschool professionals and leaders, we believe Utah’s youth are in better hands than ever. The 2019 Jump Start Afterschool Conference will guide us in a reflection on how far afterschool programming has come and reimagine this progress as a launchpad for our future. Expert keynote speakers and presenters will answer these questions and more as they empower professionals on every level to continue Shaping the Future for youth and families.
