The 24th Annual National Service-Learning Conference®, Without Limits - March 13-15, 2013, in Denver, Colorado
NYLC believes in the power of young people. With their passion, creativity, and innovation, young people can address world issues while strengthening academic and learning outcomes through service-learning. The National Service-Learning Conference is the largest annual gathering of youth and practitioners, foundation and non-profit leaders, corporate and government officials, and advocates who join together to showcase what they have accomplished in their schools and communities, share best practices, and enrichment through professional development opportunities.
The National Service-Learning Conference puts this belief in youth leadership in action, authentically engaging hundreds of young people as presenters, planning committee members, emcees, and volunteers. The dynamic play between energy and enthusiasm brought by youth and the wisdom brought by leaders in the field distinguishes the unique opportunities afforded by the National Service-Learning Conference.
The 2013 conference in Denver will be inspiring, imaginative, and innovative. There are numerous ways for your organization to become involved:
- . Send a group of youth and adults from your organization. 64% of our conference participants attend as part of groups, which are most often inter-generational.
- . The epicenter of the conference, the exhibit hall is home to food, exhibitors, the college fair and showcase as well as entertainment, and the book store.
- Numerous opportunities are available to support this unique event. Don’t miss your chance to connect with the educational and youth leaders of today.
