COVID-19: Update on the National Service-Learning Conference

Posted By Amy Meuers, Thursday, March 12, 2020
Updated: Wednesday, March 11, 2020

For 31 years, the National Youth Leadership Council has brought together students, educators, nonprofit & community leaders from across the United States and around the world for the National Service-Learning Conference so that we can bring recognition to the contributions that young people are making to change the world and to help prepare them and their adult mentors in reaching their goals.

The NYLC Board and staff have closely watched the developing situation around the COVID-19 virus and the recent diagnoses in the city of our upcoming conference. The safety of our participants is of utmost importance to us, and we do not want to jeopardize anyone’s health. We know that communities, students, educators, school partners, and families are concerned about travel and large gatherings and many school districts have prohibited travel all together. For these reasons, the NYLC board voted to move the 31st Annual National Service-Learning Conference to a virtual platform … Unmask Your Potential the virtual experience, April 16-17, 2020!

In addition, we are happy to announce that the 32nd Annual National Service-Learning Conference will take place in New Orleans, La. in partnership once again with Harry Hurst Middle School and St. Charles Parish. We are honored that the administrators, teachers, community leaders, and students are committed to hosting the event. So, mark your calendars and join us next year to experience the hospitality of New Orleans, April 8-10, 2021!

Current Unmask Your Potential registered attendees will receive admittance to the 32nd Annual Conference in New Orleans, April 8-10, 2021 with the same access purchased this year as well as access to the virtual experience, April 16-19, 2020. The current conference refund/cancellation policy remains in effect and requests will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis.

We are committed to providing you with the best of the educational sessions, plenary speakers, and connecting opportunities will be offered via the Service-Learning Network—enabling participants to share resources and ideas through the online platform! Additional details on how to access the online experience will be sent to registered attendees. Not registered? Learn more about the online experience and register today.

NYLC remains committed to convening the field of service-learning whether in-person or online so that we can all work together to create a more just, sustainable, and peaceful world through service-learning. We look forward to connecting with you virtually and seeing you in-person in 2021 in New Orleans.

Sincerely,

National Youth Leadership Council
