NYLC’s 32nd Annual National Service-Learning Conference

April 14 @ 8:00 am - April 15 @ 5:00 pm

The Call for Proposals is NOW OPEN for the 32nd Annual National
Service-Learning Conference!
 
Workshops are the heart of the National Service-Learning Conference,
providing professional development opportunities for youth and adults
alike. With the 2021 theme, “Engage. Evolve. Energize!” we will be evolving
to a new model of offering both online recorded sessions available for 30
days before and after the Conference dates for registered participants* as
well as a limited number of live online sessions during the virtual
Conference on April 14-15, 2021. *Following this time period, recordings
will be added to NYLC’s archive and available to NYLC Members.
 
Conference workshops are intended for skill-building and topics applicable
to the selected audiences, not solely for describing a service-learning
project or program. (For the latter, consider a Service-Learning Showcase
application instead.)
 
Workshop proposals are being accepted for recorded presentations that are
either 30 minutes or 45 minutes in length. You may additionally indicate
your willingness to do a live 45-minute session during the Conference on
April 14-15, 2021. (Applications for “live only” sessions will not be
accepted.)
 
Proposals will be assessed on content quality and creativity of delivery.
We strongly encourage proposals from young people. Presenters may apply for
both a workshop and a Showcase, and please remember that all presenters
must register for the conference. If accepted, presentation content cannot
be changed from the original proposal without written approval from the
conference coordinator.
 
We are particularly looking for workshops that incorporate one or more of
the following strands: Peace-Building; Climate Action; Civic Engagement;
Social Justice; Education Equity; Best Practices in Service-Learning; and,
Admin, Policy, and Research.
 
*Important Dates:*
• Proposals are due December 1, 2020 using the online form
• Notifications will be made by Jan. 8, 2021
• Recorded presentations and permission forms for any youth under 18
appearing in the video must be uploaded by Feb. 19, 2021
• Presenters must register for the Conference by March 1, 2021
• Live session presenters will be contacted with several dates and times
for practice sessions
• Live session days – April 14 & 15, 2021
 
Technical details: Further instructions about file size and format for
recorded sessions will be provided to accepted presenters. Live sessions
will be conducted on the Zoom platform using NYLC’s account using breakout
rooms. Live session presenters must be able to run their own Zoom meeting
and/or recruit an assistant to do so. Breakout options are not available
since each workshop will utilize a Breakout Room.
