Virtual Summit

Join us for the 7th annual Virtual National Community Leadership Summit, themed Our Future, Our Communities, hosted by Boston Medical Center’s Vital Village Network! This summit brings together trail blazers from around the country who are dedicated to helping children and families get equitable access to the resources they need to thrive. This has become especially important given the inequities highlighted by the COVID-19 pandemic. To ensure the health and safety of our communities, this two-day summit will take place as an interactive virtual event.

The Vital Village Leadership Summit is a space where you can connect with other passionate individuals for both personal and professional development. Through an interactive platform, attendees will be connected to and encouraged to network with community leaders, policy makers, educators, practitioners, community-based organizations, researchers, funders, and families to discuss community building and engagement strategies to promote child wellbeing.
