APOST Fall Conference for OST

September 18, 2015 @ 8:30 am - 2:30 pm


Join us on Friday, September 18th from 8:30am-2:30pm at The Carnegie Science Center for the APOST Fall Conference for OST, a FREE professional development conference.

The Fall Conference for Out-of-School Time is a conference that shares best practices in youth development. It is open to youth practitioners who want to increase their skills in working with youth in out-of-school time programs, mentoring relationships, or in summer camps.

The focus of the conference this fall is Youth Voice and Engagement. Our keynote speaker, Adora Svitak, began as a prolific short story writer and blogger at age seven and is now (at age 17) a published author of three books, an internationally acclaimed speaker, and an advocate for causes that include literacy, youth empowerment, and feminism.
