Format of the Summit:
This will be our first in person event since 2019! While we are thrilled to be able to offer the Summit in peron, we understand that some might not be comfortable traveling or attending in person event. In order to accomodate the needs of all families and youth, we plan to record select workshops and offer them online for a limited time.
FOR YOUTH: Throughout the day, there will be a dedicated space for youth to connect and attend workshops. Youth are also encouraged to attend any workshops listed on the agenda that are open to all attendees.
Registration is only open to in person attendance.
