To improve outcomes for the children and youth we serve, adult helpers need to continuously build the practical skills necessary to make a difference. The 2017 NAREN Conference will focus on providing a smorgasbord of proven skills that educators, counselors and support professionals can use with at-risk students in a wide variety of contexts. Rooted in the belief that building adult capacity improves student outcomes, NAREN 2017 will offer workshops designed to build attendee skills in:
- Relationship Building
- Motivation and Engagement
- Behavior Management
- Life Skills Coaching
- Crisis Management
- Inspirational Strategies
Applicants are strongly encouraged to submit applications that:
- teach or model one or more specific skills and;

In addition to the focus on skill-building, some additional highlights about the conference are below.
Because of the experiential nature of the conference, enrollment will be limited so that each attendee can participate fully in the activities. Limited enrollment will also ensure you more opportunities to network with other attendees as well as presenters.
