Conference | January 25-26, 2024
How can our schools provide opportunities for students to connect what they are learning to what is going on in the real world? How can we create a community of engaged learning that centers around community and civic engagement, social impact, and partnership?
The NNSP Annual Conference is an opportunity for educators from across the country to convene and collaborate around community and civic engagement programs in their schools. The conference will share tangible examples of how entire school systems as well as individual teachers can integrate civic and community engagement programs into their curriculum to create classes and programs that are engaging, thought-provoking, and stimulating for all students.
This conference serves all educators who are curious about the intersection of community engagement, social impact, and traditional academic curriculum: teachers, principals, executive directors, heads of school, division heads, department chairs, and community engagement and service-learning directors.
This three-day Community Impact Symposium will bring together high school students from across the country to consider how to create positive, systemic change in their school or local community. Students will better understand the political and structural barriers to equity in our systems of education, health, or justice; identify various approaches taken at the local, state and national levels; and work in school-based teams to create a vision statement that incorporates their personal experiences and tangible action steps. The symposium will culminate with each school team sharing their vision with relevant administrators and community engagement experts at the 2024 NNSP Conference.
