High quality content presented by country’s top experts

According to past attendees of the Families Learning Conference, their number one reason to attend is the vast range of sessions. There are over 100 to choose from at this year’s conference! Not only the range, but the depth of sessions, draws attendees back year after year. Each day’s schedule is thoughtfully assembled so that attendees can follow strands of sessions in early childhood education, adult education, research, library programming, and more.

Unique focus on engaging all members of the family

NCFL and our partners in the field have long known that in order to break the cycle of poverty, all members of the family must be engaged in academic achievement. Our two-generation focus during the Families Learning Conference equips attendees with education solutions to issues commonly encountered in educators’ work with underserved families, practical ideas that they can take back and use right away in the classroom, and ideas for community-based partnerships that enhance their work.
