The Inspirational BOOST Conference in Palm Springs
BOOST Conference (May 1-4, 2018), the largest global convention for out-of-school time, expanded learning and after-school professionals, features four days of workshops, master classes, networking, meet-the-author sessions, a film festival and more. Common goals and passions make for an inspiring, energizing gathering of like-minded educators. But it’s not all work—the 2018 schedule includes a Prince and Purple Rain homecoming party, a scavenger hunt and a Duck, Duck, BOOST relay race.
Tips for Attending:
- There are five registration pricing levels based on timing, from Super Early Bird Registration to On-Site Registration; savings can run up to $175 per person.
- Consider attending the Pre-Conference Academy, intensive sessions designed to give participants in-depth learning in specific areas, as well as inspire change. Note that on-site registration is not available; sign up before you arrive.
- Outside weather and indoor air-conditioning can create a dramatic range of temperatures, so bring an extra sweater.
