NJSACC Conference 2016


This year's conference, Strong Youth, Strong Communities, focuses on laying the foundation for long-term success in the ever-changing landscape of Afterschool, Out of School Time and Expanded Learning.

In these challenging times, it has become abundantly clear that we need to invest in our youth and give them the necessary tools to bring about positive change. It is our hope to spark ideas, creativity and conversations that will help to tackle that challenge. To that end, we are pleased to offer 54 workshops on a wide variety of topics aimed at building stronger youth and stronger communities and in essence a higher quality afterschool program.

We look forward to seeing you there!

The conference is a professional development opportunity for adults, and as such, we respectfully request that you take this time to focus on you. If you do bring children, we must insist that you make other arrangements during conference hours. Children will not be permitted in the lunch area or in the workshops.
