Online | September 18-25

Every year, StriveTogether brings together the power of our national movement for an event dedicated to connecting, learning and creating change. This year, the Cradle to Career Network Convening is going virtual.

This won’t be your typical virtual conference. We’re committed to developing the content you need in a format designed to engage, energize and recharge — including powerful keynotes from Geoffrey Canada and Nikole Hannah-Jones, time to gather with peers and space for critical conversations. You’ll end the week with the resources, ideas and partners you need to advance your work. Download the program book here.

As we deepen our commitment to shifting power to Black, Indigenous, Latinx and people of color, the power of you is more important than ever. Every child deserves every opportunity to succeed. Every community holds the answers to make it possible. Join us as we build a better future with youth and families.
