The Human Rights Campaign Foundation in partnership with the eighth National Education Association and the American Counseling Association present Time To THRIVE, the annual national conference to promote safety, inclusion, and well-being for LGBTQ youth...everywhere! Given the current public health crisis, our 8th annual conference will be presented virtually using an online conference platform. Our team is committed to organizing an impactful, engaging, and accessible virtual event where attendees can learn how to better support LGBTQ youth.

The annual Time to THRIVE conference provides a comprehensive opportunity for youth-serving professionals to build awareness and cultural competency, learn current and emerging best practices and gather resources from leading experts and national organizations in the field. The conference is strongly committed to an intersectional approach in all keynotes, workshops, and conversations.

The first 2,500 conference registrants will receive a care package compliments of our presenting conference sponsors, which includes a conference t-shirt, lanyard, mask, and safe space poster. Please be sure your shipping address is accurate as we are unable to provide replacement care packages for lost or stolen items
