13th Annual Jump Start Conference

October 13 & 14, 2017

Eccles Conference Center

Ogden, UT



The 13th 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 youth outcomes. 
We invite you to deepen your perspective, creativity, and skill set as you engage in Expanding the Possibilities for you and the youth you serve. Because of the influential role you serve as an afterschool professional, your interactions with youth can help them Expand their Possibilities in the near and distant future, as they discover their passions, build confidence, and reach new heights. We hope you Expand the Possibilities for yourself by making new connections and discovering state-of-the-art resources. By Expanding the Possibilities, we can all create a brighter future for our youth!
