National Service Learning Virtual Conference

The National Youth Leadership Council is honored to partner with Harry Hurst Middle School and St. Charles Parish Public Schools to bring you the 31st Annual National Service-Learning Conference, April 16 – 18, 2020 in New Orleans, Louisiana.

This year’s theme is Unmask Your Potential – it’s a call for educators and community members to join in partnership with students to make positive change in the world.

Unmask Your Potential will provide more than 60 hands-on learning opportunities through workshops, keynotes, and thought leader sessions. Topics range from social-emotional learning and civic education to youth leadership and international service-learning. Whether you are new to service-learning or an experienced practitioner, this conference has something for you. 

Networking is a key component of the conference with dedicated opportunities to meet and interact with other attendees from your region and from across the world. Evening receptions, exhibit hall times, lunches, and breakfasts are spaces designed for you to make connections that will advance your practice and inspire you to take action.

The National Service-Learning Conference prides itself on student participation at every level. Students make up nearly half of conference attendees and can be found on the plenary stage, facilitating workshop sessions, showcasing their projects, participating in hands-on service projects, or mingling in the youth room. Youths of all ages are welcome at the event (with an adult advisor).
