What a beautifully orchestrated and executed gathering. The panel discussions, the breakout sessions and  conversations were moving, inspiring, and informative. It felt like a family reunion. So many familiar faces, connections, relationships, new, old and forming.

What are you going to take back with you from EdUprising?

Attending the sessions on Youth Advocacy allowed us to share best practices from schools around the state of New Mexico. These sessions also provided time to collaborate with capstone leaders from other schools and identify best practices for planning, explaining, coordinating, and implementing capstones.
