Conference Description:

Service-learning is justice in action. Itís young people taking notice of inequities where they see them, and taking steps to address them. Itís educators joining in partnership with students, to make education fair and meaningful for all. Itís problems that need solving Ė environmental justice, economic justice, human rights Ė solved by those least likely to be asked to solve them, but to whom those solutions matter most.

Join us in action. Create. Demonstrate. Lead. Facilitate. Serve. Organize. Resist. Triumph. Do something. If you dream of a just world like we do, letís make it happen.

Whether youíre young or young at heart, weíre confident this conference will inspire you to make a difference in the world. When you attend the National Service-Learning Conferenceģ, you join hundreds of students, educators, and government leaders from across the country and around the globe. This event provides the tools, resources, ideas, and support you need to return home and make positive changes in your schools and communities.

So, how do you prepare students with the skills they need to make positive change in the world? You engage them in complex, meaningful projects by bringing service-learning into the classroom and into their lives. They (and you!) can learn how to do this at the National Service-Learning Conference.
