The Human Rights Campaign Foundation in partnership with the National Education Association and the American Counseling Association presents Time To THRIVE, the annual national conference to promote safety, inclusion, and well-being for LGBTQ youth...everywhere! Given the current public health crisis, our 9th annual conference will be presented virtually on February 9 - 10, 2022 with an optional pre-conference for beginners on February 8, 2022 (for a tentative conference schedule, click here). Our team is committed to organizing an impactful, engaging, and accessible virtual event where attendees can learn how to better support LGBTQ+ youth.

The annual Time to THRIVE conference provides a comprehensive opportunity for youth-serving professionals to build awareness and cultural competency, learn current and emerging best practices and gather resources from leading experts and national organizations in the field. The conference is strongly committed to an intersectional approach in all keynotes, workshops, and conversations.

Once an attendee registers for the conference, an email confirmation is automatically sent out. If a registrant is unable to locate the confirmation email, check the junk inbox as our emails sometimes get marked as spam. You may also email us at

The Time to THRIVE planning team will also email updates as confirmed workshops and speakers are announced. Approximately one week before the conference, registrants will be emailed an invitation to create a profile on our virtual conference platform called Pathable. Once the profile is created, registrants may begin networking with other registrants and will gain access to all aspects of our virtual convening.
