We are no longer accepting proposals for MAPS 2019.

If you have a topic you would like to see presented at MAPS, please send an email to erin@greatworkinc.org.


  • JUNE 15th - Last day to submit a proposal to be a presenter at MAPS

  • JULY 1st - Announcement of accepted presenters


We are seeking presenters with something to say and share! Tell us about your successes and mistakes, insights and experiences, tools and resources that will be of value to peers working with adolescents. Proposals are welcomed and encouraged from practitioners working in public, private, urban and rural and any and all affiliations.

In your submission, please highlight the key takeaways and ideas that attendees will leave with and be able to implement. In the course of your session, you may use examples of your programs. However, your objective should be helping others learn from your experience, not self promotion.

We encourage potential presenters to imagine creative ways to make their session as interactive and playful as possible. For instance, proposals that explicitly outline the interactive nature of their workshop will be viewed favorably. We strongly discourage presentations with a “sage on a stage!”

Submissions will be accepted up until June 15th and accepted presenters will be announced on July 1st. Apply to present today using the button above!
