Dear Friends and Colleagues:
You are invited to join thousands at the premiere event for young leaders and innovative educators, The 21st Annual National Service-Learning Conference — Inspire. Imagine. Innovate! Held March 24-27, 2010 in
Through three days of general sessions, featured forums, service-learning projects, and networking, the conference engages participants in local, national and global issues that service-learning addresses. The 2010 conference will feature speeches by Sir Ken Robinson, an internationally recognized leader in the development of creativity, innovation and human resources, and Carol Bellamy, President and CEO of World Learning and former executive director of UNICEF, the children's agency of the United Nations. Come explore more than 100 exhibits, and nearly 150 hands-on workshops and service-learning projects.
We also hope that you will consider sharing information about your programs at the conference. Workshop proposals are currently being accepted. Come present to the largest gathering of youths and practitioners from the service-learning field including educators in K-12 and higher education, youth leaders, trainers, policy-makers, grantees, researchers, funders and many others. Young people are strongly encouraged to submit proposals. All proposals must be submitted online by midnight CST on September 25, 2009.
What your peers say about this event.
“The conference is the #1 forum for the service-learning field to meet, greet, and exchange ideas on an annual basis. I love the diversity of topics, presentations, special events, and resources offered. The conference provides a spotlight under which I gage the field's progress and identify the needed areas for future growth.”
