St. Paul, Minn. – On April 2-5, 2023, the National Youth Leadership Council, with Volunteer Tennessee and the Tennessee Afterschool Network, will convene hundreds of youth and adults at the 34th Annual National Service-Learning Conference®, One Giant Leap for Service-Learning.

The National Service-Learning Conference is the largest gathering of youths and practitioners from the  service-learning field, drawing nearly 500 attendees from across the United States and several other countries. “The event is more than workshops and keynote addresses; it is an extension of the classroom, allowing for the youth and adult attendees to be part of a national movement, to learn and share with each other, and to demonstrate and celebrate the positive impacts each has had on the community and the  world, “ NYLC CEO Amy Meuers.

Throughout the conference, youth plan programming, emcee plenary sessions, inspire attendees through keynote addresses, and lead workshops for youth and adult peers from around the world. Youth are given the opportunity to create something so spectacular that it changes how adults perceive all young people — as solutions to real problems.

“Volunteer Tennessee is very excited to partner with the National Youth Leadership Council on the 34th
Annual National Service-Learning Conference. It will boost our ongoing efforts to expand servicelearning in the Volunteer State and offer a rare opportunity for our local partners to attend this wellrespected, national conference in Tennessee. The focus on service-learning also nicely compliments Volunteer Tennessee’s mission to encourage volunteerism and community service,” Jim Snell, Executive Director, Volunteer Tennessee.
