School’s Out Washington’s annual Bridge Conference is a multi-day regional convening focused on exploring, celebrating, and influencing our collective field(s) through the act of solidarity and unified learning. Expanded learning professionals, community organizers, school district representatives, funders, policymakers, and systems leaders gather to engage with a diverse range of knowledge, people, and perspectives; identify the ways that racial inequities impact youth, expanded learning opportunities, and educational outcomes; experience a sense of belonging to nourish social connection and professional networking; learn how to implement tangible practices that promote an equitable expanded learning opportunity ecosystem; and strive to recognize power dynamics throughout programs and systems and begin to strategize how to co-create stronger partnerships across sectors. Join us at the 2020 Bridge Conference from Tuesday, October 27 – Friday, October 30, 2020. 

2020 Bridge ConferenceThe Seeds We Sow, emphasizes intention in the act of reimagination. Only together, as a collective, will we solidify a new foundation that intertwines our cultures, values, and leadership to nourish all our young people’s excellence and right to thrive.

As the Senior Program Officer for Expanded Learning Opportunities, Fahren is leading the coordination of Expanded Learning Opportunities for 12 elementary sites that are a part of the Tacoma Social & Emotional Learning Initiative.

Fahren joined GTCF in September of 2017. Before that, she served as Senior Program Director for YMCA Pierce-Kitsap Counties where she helped launch Eagle Center, a Community Learning Center that has now expanded into 5 middle schools and 1 elementary school while overseeing mentor and arts outreach programs as well. Over the past 18 years, much of Fahren’s work has focused on the coordination of youth and community development programs. Fahren was born and raised in Tacoma as a foster-adopted child, so she understands first-hand what it means to come from disadvantage and learn to walk fully in purpose.
