NN4Y invites you to attend our sixth annual National Summit on Youth Homelessness in Washington, DC on March 18 – 19, 2019. This one-of-a-kind event focuses exclusively on how government agencies, policymakers, young leaders, service providers and other experts can partner together to prevent and respond to youth homelessness!

Once again, we are expanding the content of our Summit by adding a fourth track for the breakout sessions:

  • Introductory Practice Track: Hot topics for practitioners new to the youth homelessness field.

  • Advanced Practice Track: Hot topics for those who have been doing the work for several years.

  • Nonprofit CEO Track: Peer-to-peer learning on topics that nonprofit CEOs are grappling with.

  • Education Practice Track: Early childhood, K-12, and higher education co-convened with SchoolHouse Connection

These breakout tracks provide attendees the ability to identify opportunities to learn about practices, resources and strategies that are most relevant to their daily work in preventing and responding to youth and young adult homelessness.

You will also get to meet, network with and learn from our incredible National Youth Advisory Council!

The Summit offers the chance to learn about federal policy developments in the current political environment of both the U.S. Congress and the Administration. NN4Y will facilitate our annual discussion among federal agencies to learn more about their own work to address youth homelessness and encourage them to take targeted and systemic actions.

This promises to be an interactive and dynamic two-day event.

Hill Day

Congress will not be in session during the Summit, but Tuesday morning is still a fantastic time for attendees to meet with Congressional staff to educate them about youth and young adult homelessness. The Congressional recess may even provide you the opportunity to have a more in-depth discussion with the staffers who cover these issues.

View our Hill Day Preparation webinar, and contact Eric Masten to ensure you’re connected with other Summit participants from your state to coordinate Hill Day meetings.

Add a Day & Earn Certificate on Human Trafficking (CHT)

Following our 2019 Summit you can stay and earn your Certificate on Human Trafficking (CHT) for Runaway and Homeless Youth Providers on March 20, 2019. In partnership with the McCain Institute, National Network for Youth has created the CHT. This one-day certificate training is designed for direct service providers working at runaway and homeless youth programs. Both skill and knowledge-based, the training focuses on how to identify at-risk youth, connect youth who have been trafficked to services, and arrange specialized care.
