With only 12 days left to register for MONUMENTAL, the 25th Annual National Service-Learning Conference and 26th Global Youth Service Day, I thought it would be a great time to think of all the reasons why you should attend. So I brainstormed a huge list of reasons and then had to rank them to narrow down a top 10.
So here they are, your top 10 reasons to join us at MONUMENTAL in Washington D.C. April 9-12, 2014!
New Foundations Charter School is excited to play a role in the National Service- Learning Conference’s Hill Day this year! Our job will be assisting other conference attendees in all aspects of advocating and communicating with their district representatives. We will be able to help you with everything from rehearsing your elevator speeches to boosting your confidence!
Each year, NYLC culminates the National Service-Learning Conference® with a day of service in the host community. This year we are excited to partner with YSA (Youth Service America) to dramatically expand on this tradition, inviting conference attendees to join local partners, and the DC community to celebrate Global Youth Service Day. This dynamic service opportunity will celebrate the contributions that young people make throughout the year.
How do you have a national event centering on education and youth-led programs without involving youth in high-level decision-making?
Trick question: you can’t!
