Tennessee Conference on Volunteerism & Service-Learning

What is the Tennessee Conference on Volunteerism and Service-Learning?

The eighth annual Tennessee Conference on Volunteerism and Service-Learning aims to increase service and volunteerism across Tennessee.  The conference will encourage service leaders and participants to collaborate to address needs in Tennessee while utilizing service as a vehicle for education and change.  We are challenging our participants to understand the impact of utilizing service as a vehicle for community change.

Our main audiences for the conference are all service leaders across Tennessee, including but not limited to:

  • Non-Profit and Volunteer Management professionals
  • National Service Programs
  • Service-Learning Practitioners (P-16)
  • Corporate Social Responsibility Leaders
