The 2017 Tennessee Conference on Volunteerism and Service-Learning aims to increase service and volunteerism across Tennessee as a means of problem-solving throughout all stages of life. The conference will encourage service leaders and participants to collaborate to address needs in Tennessee while utilizing service and service-learning 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. Where do you fit in? How can you share your expertise and collaborate with others to provide quality service opportunities that transform volunteers and communities across Tennessee? Our main audiences for the conference are all service leaders across Tennessee, including but not limited to:
Non-Profit and Volunteer Management professionals
National Service Programs
Service-Learning Practitioners (P-16)
