There are over 100 workshops, so you’ll be sure to have the perfect schedule, geared towards your interests. 



Bring your Next Gen advocate teen(s) to conference! They will gain peer advocacy skills and join a global community of Gen Z student leaders working together to uproot abuse in a generation.

BLOOM365 is once again excited to partner with NOVA to offer our Annual Peer Advocate Summer Academy for teens, going into Grades 8 and up. This is an on-site, in person training. 

This training brings together student leaders from around the world who want to learn the skills and gather the resources to educate their peers on how to prevent abuse BEFORE it starts. 

This highly interactive peer to peer training prepares student leaders to:

  • EDUCATE peers and younger near peers on the root causes of domestic/sexual/teen dating violence/bullying and how to prevent them.
  • ADVOCATE for and support peers who have experienced an unhealthy, controlling, toxic or abusive relationship or friendship.
  • ACTIVATE 10% of peers and entire school communities to promote healthy relationships through First Friday campaigns that promote empathy, respect, equality and consent. 

Over 80% of teens say they would confide in a friend before going to an adult if they were experiencing or witnessing victimization. 


September 19 - 23, 2022 | ONLINE

New for 2022! We want to keep our annual conference accessible for all during this difficult time. As a result, NOVA will offer a 2022 Virtual Conference.
