While the high school student track is closed for schools to register, high school students can individually attend separate from their schools if they’re accompanied by a chaperone. If interested, please reach out to: ninstudent@adl.org.

While all Never Is Now programming is appropriate for high school students, high school students and educators can register for the High School Student Track on March 7th for an exclusive experience. This event is at no cost to educators and students. Together, students will attend panels, participate in an exclusive ADL-led workshop, build connections with teens from other schools, debrief in student-centered discussions and explore their role in challenging antisemitism and championing justice in their communities. Centered on topics raised in other Never Is Now sessions and panels, students will work with their peers and ADL facilitators to construct strategies for applying the learning to their own lives, their schools and the world around them. Educators will receive a resource guide to prepare their students for the experience and continue the learning beyond the Never Is Now Summit. You can register at here or email us at ninstudent@adl.org if you have any questions.

The inaugural Never Is Now College Student Track will empower students with the tools they need to combat antisemitism on campus and online in this uniquely challenging environment. College students are invited to both days of programming (March 6-7) with exclusive college student programming on Thursday, March 7th for only $36. You can register here or email us at neverisnow@adl.org if you have any questions.

To get the most out of Never Is Now, we encourage you to come for the full two days of this inspiring event, but we do want to make it possible for everyone to take part. So we have made a limited quantity of single-day tickets available.
