Dare to Dream of a New Era

October 17-19, 2022


In just two years’ time, the world was made anew. We reinvented the ways we live, the ways we love, the ways we learn, and the ways we work.

As we enter this new time for humanity, let’s come together to make sure the best parts of these new ways are here to stay. Let’s chart new bounds for ourselves and our work. Let’s recommit to the pursuit of a just, more perfect world for everyone, where young people have the freedom to become who they want to be.

At #HealthyTeen22, we’ll cultivate healing—inwardly and outwardly. We’ll reflect on this young decade’s renewed calls for racial justice and remarkable technological growth. And we’ll share how embracing flexibility and ambiguity liberated us to try new things.

We’ll do all this not because this is easy, but because this is our charge. Freed from the can’ts and won’ts of yesterday, we dare to dream of a new era.

Welcome back, friends. And welcome to Miami.

The “Must-Attend” Conference

Each year, the Healthy Teen Network Conference is the go-to network for connecting youth-supporting professionals with the opportunities, training, and tools they need to empower the next generation to lead healthy and fulfilling lives. Our vast membership network of more than 5,600 affiliates is made up of diverse adolescent sexual and reproductive health professionals. 

At Healthy Teen Network, we know youth-supporting professionals do their best when they’re connected to great opportunities and resources—and with others working in sexual and reproductive health. And when they are well-supported, we see more positive outcomes for the youth they serve.

As a conference sponsor, you can join us in doing this important work.

What exhibitors have said
This was an excellent conference for us.   The attendees are passionate about their work, we had many networking opportunities, and there was high traffic in the exhibit area.   We will definitely be back next year.
In the midst of a pandemic, it was nice to have opportunity to still receive training and appreciated it was offered virtually.   The opening keynote was great!
Each year, the conference has helped us improve our work by focusing on the complexity of work with pregnant and parenting youth, many of whom are in foster care and greatly impacted by public policy.   The conference brings everything together in one place!

Sponsorship is win-win for everyone. You get exposure to conference attendees; they get the capacity-building sessions and networking opportunities they need to provide the very best sexual health education and services.
