We believe every student can do great things when given the opportunity to learn and discover their future paths through career exploration. Because when they can see it, they can be it.

Our inaugural NS4ed Summit is working with Successful Practices Network to convene education leaders passionate about developing initiatives that will effectively prepare ALL students for their future. The desire to bring change is escalating and it’s clear that as leaders, we must explore innovative practices to establish an equitable approach that will properly prepare our students. Despite the millions in additional funding, our problems will not be resolved until we truly acknowledge the systemic issues and have bold conversations that serve the needs of our leaders, community, and students. Over the course of this event, attendees will learn from each other and explore ways to close the gap between education, employers, and economic development. 

The exclusive event offers an intimate setting for authentic conversations and actionable outcomes.

Everyone stays together: Escape distractions and focus on meaningful conversations with attendees and speakers. To facilitate quality conversations, everyone stays at the resort together, sharing meals, experiences, and ideas that foster an event that drives lasting relationships. With limited capacity, the event seeks to offer authentic conversations among education’s top leaders.

Respected & Passionate Practitioners: Our speakers have been hand-picked because of their work to improve education, close the equity gap, and lead inspiring initiatives through career-connected learning. Learn from those successfully addressing the equity gap, and reshaping education for maximized achievement.

All-inclusive Event: Attending this event includes everything you need for $250. We will take care of flight arrangements, two nights at the luxurious Tamaya Resort & Spa, all meals, excursions, and more. Attendees will arrive on Wednesday, October 26 and depart on Friday afternoon, October 28. Simply fill out the form below and NS4ed will take care of the rest.
