National Community Leadership Summit
October 18-19, 2022

Join us for the 9th Annual National Community Leadership Summit, themed Crafting Our Legacy: Collaborative Action for Love, Liberation and Joy, hosted by Boston Medical Center’s Vital Village Networks! This summit brings together trail blazers from around the country who are dedicated to helping children and families get equitable access to the resources they need to thrive. This has become especially important given the inequities highlighted by the COVID-19 pandemic. 

On October 17th we will host a half-day pre-conference, the Data Equity Symposium, for those seeking to build equity and strengths-focused, and socially and culturally diverse research, data-sharing, and evaluation capacity and expand collaborative partnerships in this realm. 


To ensure the health and safety of our communities, the summit will take place as an interactive virtual event.

The Vital Village Leadership Summit is a space where you can connect with other passionate individuals for both personal and professional development. Through an interactive platform, attendees will be connected to and encouraged to network with community leaders, policy makers, educators, practitioners, community based organizations, researchers, funders, and families to discuss community building and engagement strategies to promote child wellbeing.
