What you do for Indiana’s youth counts. That’s why you can count on us. 

2020 looks a little different than we expected. But through it all, you’ve been there. Leading by example. And helping our children and communities thrive. We see your resilience, your courage and your commitment. And, well, we want to see more! 

Though our KIDS COUNT® conference also looks a little different this year, we want you to be part of it 

We’ve heard your needs and concerns during this unprecedented time and have developed an immersive conference that offers you the same valuable learning with networking opportunities, in a safe and interactive virtual environment. 

We want to know you’ll be attending, and we want to see how your 2020 has been, from the tiring… to the inspiring. 

Submit an image of the kids you serve, your team, or a project you’ve been working on, and we may feature it as part of this year’s virtual conference(Disclaimer: Please ensure your images comply with your organization’s disclosure agreements and are suitable for public sharing.) 

Email us at  kcc2020@iyi.org to submit your image, and please include your name, organization, and the names of those featured in the photo. 

Once you’ve done that, it’s time to start counting down to KIDS COUNT® 2020. Stay tuned for more information on how to register

Part 1: Supporting Youth in a Virtual Environment

Research tells us that relationships are the key to successful learning, but can you build a relationship and support youth using digital tools? Yes, you can. This interactive presentation will demonstrate ways that youth-serving organizations can leverage digital resources and e-learning opportunities to connect with the youth they serve.

In the spring of 2020, students across the United States joined others across the world in school closures. Educators and youth workers were thrust into new ways of interacting with students. Many will continue with this challenge for the foreseeable future. In this session we will discuss the complexity of what has happened, the health disposition of innovators, practical frameworks for innovation, and why educators and youth worker are needed now more than ever.

Part 3: Panel Discussion
