National Youth Leadership Council (NYLC) is excited to announce that New Foundations Charter School in Philadelphia, P.A. will be the host site for the National Service-Learning Conference!

Join us in celebrating 30 years of growing youth as leaders!  The National Service-Learning Conference highlights and promotes service-learning as a way of teaching and learning that builds academic and citizenship skills while renewing communities. It is the only major national conference that provides professional development to a diverse audience of K-H educators, administrators, pre-service teacher education staff and faculty, researchers, youth leaders, partners, parents, program coordinators, national service members, community-based organization staff, policy-makers, and corporate and foundation officers.

Service-learning is democracy in action. It’s young people taking notice of inequities where they see them, and taking steps to address them. It’s educators joining in partnership with students, to make education fair and meaningful for all. It’s problems that need solving – environmental justice, economic justice, human rights – solved by those least likely to be asked to solve them, but to whom those solutions matter most.

Join us in action. Create. Demonstrate. Lead. Facilitate. Serve. Organize. Resist. Triumph. Do something. If you dream of a just world like we do, let’s make it happen.
