October 26–27, 2023 Seattle (Southcenter), WA

Engage with peers, researchers, and national experts in youth reengagement at the Open Doors Summit!

Summit Materials

Like a Conference, But Different

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. Bring a laptop and come ready to visit links, read materials, and interact digitally. Expect program share-outs, data dives, and lots of big-picture ideas.

Develop a set of recommendations for strengthening Open Doors programs, partnerships, and policy statewide.

Open Doors Youth Reengagement

#

Open Doors Youth Reengagement provides education and services to older youth who have dropped out of school or are not expected to graduate from high school by the age of 21 and reengages them through programs that encourage community partnerships, create multiple pathways for students to realize success, and provide an on-ramp to post-secondary achievement through a performance-based, individualized support model.

Partners

This summit is being made possible by the Community Partnerships for Reengagement Initiative, which is funded by the Ballmer Group and Kaiser Permanente.
