We all know how helpful scouring the comments section before making an important online purchase can be. Why then should deciding to “buy in” to a big national conference be any different? Here are some past reviews to help settle any lingering doubts about why our national conferences are so impactful – we give these reviews 5 stars for sure!

“We were so excited about all we learned that we had to go “back to press” with this monthly blog. We couldn’t wait to share the highlights with you!”

-Family Empowerment Network

“With over 800 participants from states around the U.S. and countries around the world, this year’s conference was incredible. San Diego provided an abundance of resources as the host city including sunshine that many of our midwest and east coast attendees appreciated”


“I would say that [the conference] was an experience that I’ll never forget, and I think it was an experience that was really important for youth to experience all the different perspectives, all the research and the keynote speakers”

-Spirit of Youth
