About our Conference 

VPOST is the only state-wide event for the out-of-school time field in Virginia. Our annual conference provides professional learning and networking for hundreds of practitioners and champions across the Commonwealth. 


This year’s conference theme, “Future Ready, Starts Today” speaks to the need to prepare young people for a future we might not yet imagine while recognizing the importance of the here and now. In the wake of the pandemic, as we are in the process of redefining our new normal, what is worth carrying forward into the future, and what are we ready to leave in the past? What skillsets and mindsets can we adopt today to help us and the young people we serve to prepare for the future? How can we be future-oriented while remaining rooted in the power of the present day? 

Join approximately 200 active leaders in education and out-of-school time, representing thousands of youth from across the Commonwealth. Our conference is designed for Afterschool/Summer Learning Programs, Schools, Community Centers, Mentoring Leaders, Libraries, Parks & Recreation Departments, Government Agencies, Faith-Based Programs, Early Childhood/Childcare Leaders, Nonprofit Organizations, and Business Partners!

About the Keynote

For centuries HOPE has been discussed in theology, mythology, philosophy, and everyday conversation but science was slow in examining this powerful life-changing force we call HOPE.  Rick Miller’s keynote will examine this powerful concept by scientifically exploring how HOPE is created and activated for all, by all, and why it is important to understand the transformation from trauma-informed care to hope-informed strategies. 



Attendees are responsible for securing their own lodging. We have a hotel block at the location of the conference, The Inn at Virginia Tech, with a discounted rate of $105 per night.
