Save the Date for Ideas into Action 2022

National Safe Place Network (NSPN) is excited to announce the date of Ideas into Action 2022.

Youth service providers of all levels are encouraged to save the date for this virtual convene. Ideas into Action differs from a traditional conference or web-based presentation. This event is designed to provide thought leaders the opportunity to listen, discuss, and plan for change around important topics affecting youth. This event is ideal for someone wishing to create action to make change and not just hear more about the problem.


To facilitate deep learning and reinforce organizational implementation, there will be three sessions for each topic.

  • Priority Topic Presentations
    Participants will hear a presentation on their topic of choice from a nationally recognized expert in the field.

  • Idea Exchange
    Participants will discuss perspectives and exchange ideas of action.

  • Action Planning Session
    Participants will define individual and organizational strategies; identify potential barriers to implementation; and strengthen solutions for youth, families, organizations, and communities.

Participants of this event will be able to walk away with an action plan with concrete goals and strategies developed with the support of colleagues from across the country. All participants will come together at the end of the event to share key takeaways from each topic.
