Register now for HRC's 8th annual Time to THRIVE Conference!

In light of the current health crisis, Time to THRIVE will be going virtual for our 2021 conference. We are organizing an outstanding list of virtual keynotes, interactive virtual workshop sessions, online networking opportunities and the ability to engage with virtual exhibitors.

Even more exciting, we have significantly reduced our registration fees to encourage more educators, counselors and other youth-serving professionals to participate. Time to THRIVE is co-presented by the National Education Association and the American Counseling Association and attracts a broad range of youth-serving professionals to learn more about promoting safety, inclusion and well-being for LGBTQ youth.
