Save the date for our next Mini-Conference Saturday, February 1, 2020. 

Last year, we held our inaugural Powerful Learners Conference in which educators, youth workers, tutors, professionals, and administrators from across the Bay Area came together to learn concrete strategies designed to increase students’ belief in themselves as learners and their power in the classroom and beyond. On Saturday, February 1, 2020 we will host the 2nd Annual Powerful Learners Conference focused on student agency, or non-cognitive skill development, including social emotional learning through an equity lens.

Registration opens November 2019
