Community Engagement Conference 2017 East Coast Summit

Engage Your Community

Today, over 50% of our nation's children now participate in the federal free or reduced lunch program for the first time since its inception. The sad truth is that the number of children growing up in poverty in our country is on the rise. This is a sobering statistic for schools and communities grappling with the many challenges faced by impoverished families and children and the residual effects on communities.

Join like-minded education and community leaders at the one day East Coast Summit, "The Power of One," to learn practical strategies to begin pushing back against the negative effects of poverty on our children, families, communities, and nation.
