Synergy

The SYNERGY annual conference convenes hundreds of out of school time providers, including faith-based organizations, the NC Community College System, universities, child advocacy groups, community groups, and other stakeholders to share insight on research-based practices, effective programs, and public policies that impact students and their overall success in school and life.  Elected officials and policymakers are invited to attend in order to hear how grassroots efforts are making a difference in the local community, families, and student achievement.
