The HOPE Transformation promo image

The Fourth Annual HOPE Summit will take place virtually on March 20 and 21, 2024. The Summit is for all who want to learn more about how positive childhood experiences (PCEs) and the HOPE framework support children’s growth into healthy adults. This year’s goal and theme – The HOPE Transformation – is to support organizational transformation and the adoption of HOPE framework. Summit participants will learn about the Six Standards of HOPE and the new HOPE-Informed Organizational Certification program.

Summit participants are encouraged to have an understanding of the HOPE framework and PCEs. We will offer a free Introduction to HOPE workshop for all participants prior to the Summit. Additionally, the purchase of a Summit ticket includes free access to the self-paced online course, Spreading HOPE: An Introduction to the HOPE Framework.

This was my first HOPE Summit, but it certainly will not be my last. I enjoyed the speakers and each of the sessions attended and plan to incorporate the information in my work. I also made some wonderful connections with other participants and look forward to attending the HOPE Summit again next year. Thank you!
