WE’RE HEADED TO D.C.!

SUBMIT A WORKSHOP PROPOSAL

30th Annual National Service-Learning Conference®
Marriott Wardman Park
April 22-24, 2019 | Washington, D.C.

Service-learning is democracy 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.

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.
