The 2007 NAREN Conference will be the 4th Annual Conference for the National At-Risk Education Network in beautiful Panama City, Florida.
Each conference is concentrated in attendance but grows each year...and this is by design. The NAREN Conference calls together each year a focused group of at-risk education specialists, namely dedicated educators and support service areas aimed at one thing: quality at-risk education for our "other youth."

This year NAREN is honored to have Jerry Conrath as both a keynote and workshop leader for the 2007 Conference. Jerry is author of numerous books and articles on discouraged learners. He has 20 years of public school teaching experience and has helped organize and direct two schools-within-schools for at-risk kids. Jerry is now retired, but still active doing conference speaking and offering the Our Other Youth Seminars, which he founded.

Jerry Conrath will give a keynote on opening day (Tuesday, February 20th), a workshop for all participants the same morning, then one of several breakouts in the afternoon.

The conference is designed for colleagial presentations.
This year's theme is the 4S Conference:
1) Sexual issues for youth: GLBQT, teen pregnancy issues, promiscuity, STDs, etc.
2) Sports: How can sports help save at-risk youth?
3) Suicide and Other Mental Health Issues
4) Success: The business of education is to improve children's chances for succeeding as adults. We share how we can make that happen better with at-risk youth, concentrating on these 4S areas.

Please consider sharing your expertise and experiences. Presenters are granted a 25% reduction in the conference fee. Download the Presentation Proposal form at: http://www.atriskeducation.net/news/conferences.html
