Learn how professionals are using the HOPE framework in their work

The Fourth Annual HOPE Summit focused on the HOPE transformation, where organizations and practices are transformed through the HOPE framework. Prioritizing positive childhood experiences (PCEs) improves the well-being of children and families, and the HOPE framework can be practiced across sectors and in individual and large settings including communities and organizations.

We are excited to share the event recordings from this year’s Summit, now available for free, including the keynote addresses given by Leonard Burton, President of the Center for the Study of Social Policy (CSSP), and Aimee Zeitz-Gruber, MFT, Executive Director of Community Well-Being and Project Director of Partners in Prevention at the YMCA of San Diego County, and 18 different workshop presenters. From these recordings, you will learn about the presenters’ unique experiences and lessons in implementing the HOPE framework in their field and how you can begin practicing PCEs in your work. We are excited seeing how the HOPE framework creates meaningful, positive impact on children and families across the country and the world.

The Promises of HOPE: Building a World that Centers the Positive

Leonard Burton challenged Summit participants to expand our knowledge of antiracist approach, to reimage early childhood care through antiracist policy and practices, and to identify our role as professionals and organizations to support and affirm parents and caregivers.

Aimee Zeitz-Gruber highlighted the successes and lessons learned through the YMCA of San Diego County‘s journey of adopting HOPE as a core service delivery framework. She dived into key areas of implementation including the practice, program and policy levels.


The Summit featured 18 interactive workshops across three sessions led by experts in their fields who showcased real examples of how they are practicing the HOPE framework and positive childhood experiences in their own work.
