partners in progress: 2019 Three day conference

July 16 - 18, 2019
St. Lawrence University
Canton, NY


How can we work together to support the children and families in our communities?
Educators, social workers, and non-profit organizations, this conference is for you.



Strategies for all areas of the community. Our presenters will speak about a number of topics: social emotional learning, poverty, trauma informed care, brain science, personalized learning, leadership, diversity and inclusion, resilience, and wellness. If you support children and families in the work you do, at a school or other community organization, this conference is for you.

On-Site Support. Learn from the experts, then follow up. Our knowledgeable staff of volunteers are here to help you. If you’d like to learn more on a specific topic, you can request more time with a presenter or staff member who is experienced in that subject.

Family-friendly atmosphere. In conjunction with the Constructivist Conference, we offer childcare for infants and toddlers, and activities for older children.
