Call for Proposals Now Open for MONUMENTAL

The National Youth Leadership Council, along with co host Youth Service America (YSA), is pleased to announce that workshop and showcase proposals are now being accepted for the 25th Annual National Service-Learning Conference® and 26th Annual Global Youth Service Day. MONUMENTAL is the premiere event for those who view youth as solutions for stronger communities and schools.

“The conference is the most valuable conference that I have ever attended. Each year I look forward to attending this conference because it always inspires me to see what youth are doing around the world with their service-learning projects.” — Judy Huynh, Ionia Intermediate School District, Ionia, MI.

Monumental provides an engaging and comprehensive professional development conference for youth and adults who are committed to addressing issues that impact local communities and the world. Workshop proposals that offer innovative strategies grounded in research, focus on results, are well-designed, interactive sessions that do not rely on PowerPoint presentations, and are not sales pitches are more likely be accepted. People want to attend workshops that provide information, skills, and tools they can use.

Don’t miss the opportunity to present to the largest gathering of youth and adults who see young people as leaders including k-12 educators and faculty in higher education, youth leaders, trainers, policy-makers, grantees, researchers, funders, and many others. Explore more than 80 exhibits, hundreds of hands-on workshops, showcases and projects, as well as countless networking opportunities. Young people are strongly encouraged to submit proposals.

“The conference is top notch … it thoroughly meets the needs of teachers, administrators, and most importantly the students.” — Nancy DiNunzio, LEAD Academy, Nashville, TN.

All proposals must be submitted online by 11:59 p.m. CST on September 27, 2013. Visit the online call for proposals website to view the selection criteria and submit your proposal.
