Symposium: Building a Child and Youth Centered Community

Friday, April 26, 2024 | 8:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.

McGavick Conference Center, Clover Park Technical College

Greentrike’s annual Symposium is a half-day event to inspire, provoke and engage the community to collectively work toward making Pierce County the best place to experience childhood from birth to 25. We celebrate the work being done in our community on behalf of children and youth, exchange knowledge and ideas, and identify actions we can take together to build a community that acknowledges, nurtures, and benefits from the capabilities of its young people.

This year’s event will feature keynote speaker Dr. Calvin Mackie, founder of STEM NOLA, a nonprofit that brings STEM opportunities to underserved students in Louisiana. We will also hear from local sector leaders who are championing children and youth, the Child and Youth Centered Communities movement, and a panel of young people from across Pierce County. The Symposium will also include multiple collaborative activities to connect and engage with your peers and community.
