Each year, more than 2,500 students, teachers, facilitators, community partners, business leaders, and community leaders attend the EAST Conference, the EAST Initiative's largest event of the year. This three-day event allows attendees to share stories and ideas and showcase and celebrate work from the past year, concluding with a formal banquet. Each program is allowed to bring eight students to conference. In celebration of EAST's 20th year, the theme for this year's conference is EAST XX (20).
