Attending this event?
School’s Out Washington’s annual Bridge Conference brings together school-age care providers, youth development professionals, leaders, community organizers, funders, and policymakers from across the country. Attendees will hear from thought-provoking presenters and learn new strategies to build strong programs and equitable systems for young people, in and out of school. Reflected in all aspects of the Bridge Conference are the values of equity, belonging, leadership, nourishment, change, innovation, and community. In 2022, we are celebrating the 20th anniversary of Bridge!

We gather to:
  • Engage with a diverse range of knowledge, people, and perspectives
  • Identify and address the ways that racial inequities impact youth, expanded learning opportunities, and educational outcomes
  • Experience a sense of belonging to nourish social connection and professional networking
  • Learn how to implement tangible practices that promote high quality programs and an equitable expanded learning opportunity ecosystem
  • Strive to recognize power dynamics throughout programs and systems and begin to strategize how to co-create stronger partnerships across sectors

2022 Bridge: Illuminating Becoming: What does it look like to embody the past, present, and future? How do we hold our collective learning and embrace with honesty who we are and where we are going? We are in the process of becoming what we imagined. Our 2022 Bridge Theme, Illuminating Becoming, invites us to come together and celebrate our continued growth. Through rest, connection, and joy, we find the courage and inspiration to live our values and build the communities our youth – and we – deserve.

How to Use Sched: Because this is an in-person Conference, each session is first-come, first-served. The majority of our sessions will range from 30-80 people. This online schedule is to help you think in advance about which sessions you are most interested in. We will also offer a printed program for all attendees at the Conference.

Note: We expect to offer more than 50 sessions, and as additional sessions are confirmed or details revised, we will update this schedule. Revised 9/9/22
