The 2016 National Service-Learning Conference® is Educate. Ignite. Transform. So what does that mean? Let’s break it down:

Connect with Youth and Adult Leaders from Around the World!

Join the more than one thousand students, educators, and government leaders from across the country and around the world at Educate. Ignite. Transform., the 27th Annual National Service-Learning Conference, Minneapolis, Minn., March 30 – April 2, 2016. This intergenerational event provides attendees with the tools, resources, ideas, and support to return home to improve their practice, their schools, and their communities.

How do you prepare students with the skills they need to change the world?

  • You engage them in complex, meaningful projects that require sustained engagement, collaboration, research, management of resources, and the development of a product or service.
  • You bring service-learning into your classroom.
  • You show them that they are not alone — that thousands of young people across this country and around the world are making real change at the local, national, and global level.
  • You bring them to the largest gathering of youth and adults committed to changing the world with young people, for all people – the 27th Annual National Service-Learning Conference.
