Over the course of the last three years, Sport in Society has worked extensively with local and national sport-based youth development organizations to identify their organizational challenges and assets. With this data, Sport in Society has developed a series of collaborative learning forums, webinars, and online resources that are designed specifically for organizations that strive to use sport for positive youth development. This offering is intended to meet these needs by providing solution-oriented meetings, panel discussions, and showcases. Lunch will be served. This event is free, but advanced registration is required.
