The Open Doors Summit will feature opportunities to reflect on the Open Doors Youth Reengagement program and its implementation—especially the structures, practices, and findings from the recent Community Partnerships for Reengagement Initiative (CPRI). Unlike a conference, where outside inspiration or strategies share the stage, the Open Doors Summit is focused on understanding what Open Doors Youth Reengagement presently is, how it works, and what we may support it to become in the future.
Join peers, researchers, and national experts in youth reengagement to discuss concepts and draft recommendations to shape the future of Open Doors Youth Reengagement in Washington state. The Summit will focus on recent findings, programs, and possibilities. Expect program share-outs, data dives, and lots of big-picture ideas.
