18th Annual Jump Start Conference

Nov 04, 2022 9:00 am - Nov 05, 2022 5:00 pm




The 18th Annual Jump Start Afterschool 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 18th Annual Conference, UAN is excited to celebrate in person at the Ogden Eccles Conference Center. Join us as we acknowledge the strides we have made as a community in afterschool programming over the last 18 years! With such a strong, established field of afterschool professionals and leaders, we believe Utah’s youth are in better hands than ever. The 2022 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 inspire us to unite and expand our knowledge as we focus on our 18th Annual Jump Start Theme, Together Towards Tomorrow!

Early bird attendees will also have access to the live virtual multi-state Open Minds, Open Spaces virtual conference on Nov. 17th and Nov.18th. Don't miss out on this unique opportunity to connect with afterschool educators from Arizona, Colorado, Hawaii, Oregon, Utah, and Wyoming.
