Impacting Our Community

2015 North Carolina Service-Learning Summit

The North Carolina Service-Learning Coalition is pleased to announce that registration for our 2015 North Carolina Service-Learning Summit is now OPEN!

The NCSLC is excited to head to Summerfield to host service-learning supporters and experts at the Guilford County Schools’ Laughlin Professional Development Center as they share practices and valuable trainings surrounding how to start or enhance your students’ experiences in an all-day conference open to teachers, students, nonprofit partners, community groups, and service-learning rookies and experts.

The theme of this year’s summit is “Impacting Our Community”.  There will be a variety of workshops, focusing on one of three tracks:

Service-Learning in Action
These workshops are aimed at those looking to understand the basic foundation of service-learning and how the practice of service-learning can impact all communities. These sessions are intended to help others elevate their practices and align service-learning with effective teaching and youth development practices in academic areas.

Service-Learning Best Practices
These workshops share examples of service-learning programs that coordinate organizations with a focus in service-learning experiences. These sessions are focused on the implementation of sustainable practices and programs that connect community organizations with youth and young adults.

Service-Learning Advanced Practices
These workshops are aimed at participants who have extensive service-learning experience and engage them to dig deeper into foundational understandings and practices of high quality service-learning through systemic and sustainable practices.

Take the opportunity to meet and network with fellow service-learning enthusiasts and practitioners from all across North Carolina.
