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

The tenth 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.
