SAVE THE DATE: Join us April 28 – May 1 at the Palm Springs Convention Center for BOOST Conference 2015!
This is the nation’s largest, most recognized and comprehensive conference for after-school and out-of-school time professionals. BOOST is committed to creating opportunities for change in educational and social service agencies that are serving our youth during out-of-school hours. They also support out-of-school professionals through quality professional development opportunities, program and resource development, building community partnerships, and a variety of consulting services.
Our Grand Opening Session will take place at the conference on April 29th and it’s going to be a big hit, so don’t miss it! Drum Café West Coast will be presenting one of the largest interactive events, complete with Djembe drums and percussion instruments for every attendee. The “unshakable optimist,” Simon Sinek will be the keynote speaker. Just like Drum Café West Coast, Sinek teaches leaders and organizations how to inspire their team through visionary thinking and rare intellect. We will also host an interactive workshop following our opening session from 10 a.m. to Noon (seating will be limited.) On Thursday, April 30 from 11:30 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. – Drum Café West Coast will present, “Ignite Learning through the Power of Rhythm” at Station C on the trade show floor.
Be sure to stop by our Booth No. 601 during the conference to talk about which of our collaborative learning and youth development programs fits your team’s needs. Together we can inspire youth, inspire learning and inspire change!

It’s easy to correlate the relationship between doing things that make you happy and the […]
Happy New Year from the entire Drum Cafe West team! This is the month where we all make a resolution and vow to stick to it. A key influencer in keeping a resolution is productivity. Why? If you can stay on top of your to-do list, then you’ll have more time to embrace your resolution […]
Throughout the year, we take part in so many different types of events. We see it all—hotel ballrooms filled with hundreds of people, outdoor stages for thousands, holiday parties in the office and more. In between those large events, we get the opportunity to present for very intimate groups. These experiences always leave us inspired […]
Sharing ideas to grow is at the core of every successful business. Without new ideas and fresh perspectives, we remain stagnant and still. This is why it is critical that we dust off the cobwebs and learn something new each and every day. We recently did an event with Microsoft’s Content Services and International team […]
A part of our business that is equally important as the corporate side, is the work we do with schools and kids. These programs really move us, as we see kids busting the biggest smiles and truly coming alive by drumming through one of our programs. We facilitate programs for all types of schools, institutions, […]
The drumming began and in they entered. One hundred or so, faith-filled educators ready to groove! I can tell when a group enters the room how the event will proceed. Occasionally, I’ll get a group that looks a bit trepidatious while others are rocking all the way to their seats. This group was all smiles […]
