A showcase
for progress

Bringing it all together

The annual National Convening takes the best ideas from Regional Summits to the next level and is held on the campus of one of the founding higher education partners. There, learners present, advocate, and respond to questions about their prototypes. The objective is to move ideas to action — prototyping, enriching, testing and scaling new approaches designed together with learners.

New directions are essential for the future of all learners. Together we will accelerate change.

The first National Convening will be hosted by Grand Valley State University online August 5, 2021 from 1 to 3:30 p.m. EDT. Registration allows students to vote and give feedback on the best ideas. Students who vote will automatically be entered into a drawing to win cash prizes of up to $1,000. Join the movement!


“We believe in the power of collective impact for transformational change. This collaboration is a vital way to close the equity in education gap by engaging students in a design-centered approach and having the systems and organizations ready to accelerate and implement these new ideas.”
