Interested in Presenting at our Conference

We are seeking proposals for our bi-annual national conference Light the Future to be held at the Women’s Building in San Francisco May 1-3, 2019. As we celebrate our 25 year history and shine a light on the future for Beacons, this signature event celebrates the vast network of leaders from across our country. Over 200 leaders, staff, educators, capacity builders, researchers, resource providers, and other stakeholders attend this three day-long conference devoted to the comprehensive programs and visionary leadership of the Beacon Network and the impact of the Beacon Center Model on children and their families, schools, and the community as a whole.

Interested in Sponsoring our Conference

For over twenty five years Beacon Centers have revitalized neighborhoods and empowered youth by transforming school sites into vibrant hubs that connect the community and expand learning beyond school hours. Today, 5 Beacon Cities, host over 180 Beacon Centers, serving over 100,000 youth, their families each year.

We hope you that you will join us in celebrating and will consider sponsoring our events next Spring at any level. On behalf of the Beacon National Network, we want to thank you for your commitment to improving the lives of children, families and communities across the country
