Annual Conference

We hold a conference each year, where program directors and administrators of community-based heritage language schools; members of the language communities involved in these schools; and directors and leaders in public, private, and charter schools who are interested in working with community-based heritage language schools come together to share research and best practices. The last conference was held October 13, 2018, at American University in Washington, DC. Please let us know if you would like to receive announcements about future conferences. Write to
