What is Connection?

Commonly referred to as the UN-conference, Connection is more than an event – it’s an experience. It’s an opportunity to explore new insights, the latest advances, and genius developments, all mixed with a sprinkle of grounded wisdom. More than that, it’s an opportunity to reflect in ways we often don’t have time for.

Connection brings together inspiring speakers, influential leaders, innovative practitioners, and a passionate national audience for this immersive experience. This year’s event is being held on September 20th-21st in a city known for innovation: Pittsburgh, PA.

Where/when is Connection 2017 being held?

Connection 2017 is being held in Pittsburgh, PA. Pittsburgh offers both scale and intimacy, history and cutting edge uniqueness.

What is the Connection experience like?

The main stage program is only a fraction of what happens at Connection – the full experience involves many more activities and interactive installations that catalyze discussion and stimulate new relationships.  

The experience kicks off with a welcome reception that introduces you to this year’s Connection event and to prepare you for what’s ahead.  The next day  is spent alternating between inspirational thought-provoking talks from our speakers and meals & interaction with fellow delegates, who comprise a truly multi-faceted group of change-makers passionate about strengthening outcomes for youth in our county.

During breaks between sessions, Connection offers innovative hands-on activities, art exhibits, and of course, meet-ups with the speakers.  On the final evening, take the chance to kick back, relax, and share new ideas over food, drinks, and entertainment at Session 5.
