29th Annual National Service-Learning Conference®
InterContinental Riverfront Saint Paul
March 11-13, 2018 | Saint Paul, MN

Registration open September 5

Last March, we asked you to Dare to Dream. To dream big. To dream of a world that is equitable for everyone and in every education system. Dreaming is a key energizer. Having a vision inspires us to start working. And that’s what we need to do next. We must get to work.

Next year’s theme is Justice in Action.

Service-learning is justice in action. It’s young people taking notice of inequities where they see them, and taking steps to address them. It’s educators joining in partnership with students, to make education fair and meaningful for all. It’s problems that need solving – environmental justice, economic justice, human rights – 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, let’s make it happen.
