We hear you – you want tools, techniques, and a framework to mobilize stakeholders around improving the quality and quantity of youth sports activity in your local community. So, we’re adding a second, optional day to the Summit, to be hosted at the Aspen Institute. Sessions will be facilitated by Aspen Institute and other experts who can help attendees understand how to take measure of the state of play in their communities, and apply the five conditions of collective impact. More information on the workshop day, including a full agenda and list of speakers, is here.
