On April 11-14, 2012 at the Minneapolis Convention Center, they want it to be the most comprehensive service-learning professional development opportunity in the world!
Attend the 23rd Annual National Service-Learning Conference® and youthrive PeaceJam Leadership Conference, bringing you the largest gathering of youth and practitioners involved in the service-learning movement. Over the history of the service-learning movement, young people have been at the forefront, generating change in their communities and around the world.
The 2012 conference theme, Our World, Our Future, is an opportunity to share how youth passion, creativity and innovation can address world issues. How are youth impacting the global water crisis? How are youth helping to end poverty and racism? How have they created positive changes in curriculum, in communities, across cultures? What does the research show happens when young people lead through service-learning? How can youth performance and art be a catalyst for youth leadership?
