Fred Rogers first looked into the camera and asked us to be his neighbor more than fifty years ago, and the impact of his legacy still resonates today. Educators, clinicians, and practitioners in a range of child- and family-serving fields consistently turn to Fred Rogers’ legacy to inform their practice, and Fred’s wisdom continues to inspire families and children’s helpers. 

In the summer of 2024, the Fred Rogers Institute is pleased to convene its second annual Work of Fred Rogers Conference. This conference will be practice-focused and practice-informed. This year's conference will feature sessions from educators and other child-serving professionals who have ideas, stories, and inspiration to share with peers. Some questions we hope to explore together include:

  • How does Fred Rogers’ work inform practice in classrooms, communities, and child- and youth-focused spaces? 
  • What can adults draw from Fred Rogers’ work as we seek to be children’s helpers in our world today?

This conference will be of interest to all educators and practitioners who work in the direct service of children and/or families, or who provide support to those who work directly with children or families.
