UAN's Jump Start Afterschool Conference is a professional learning event for afterschool staff, educators, emerging leaders, and program administrators. Each year, 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.

WHO: Afterschool Professionals in Utah
WHERE: Virtually
WHEN: October 16-23, 2020

In an effort to create a safe space for all of Utah's afterschool staff and educators, we have made the decision to hold the 16th Annual Jump Start Conference virtually. The 2020 conference will be held this fall, sometime between mid-October and mid-November. This year's conference will support and encourage afterschool leaders and educators to think critically and creatively about their afterschool programs and how best to serve Utah's youth and families. We anticipate offering a variety of live and pre-recorded sessions, supplemented with other opportunities for meaningful engagement and interaction. Although we may be physically apart this year, we look forward to collectively thinking outside the box and ultimately Exceeding the Vision of afterschool programming in Utah.
