Monumental: an event you don’t want to miss
About the conference:
Monumental, hosted by YSA (Youth Service America) and NYLC (National Youth Leadership Counsel), provides more than workshops and keynote addresses; it is an extension of the classroom, allowing for the youth and adult attendees to be part of something bigger. Both youth and adults gain the tools, resources, ideas, and inspiration to return home to improve their practice, their schools, and their communities. The conference’s multiple day, concurrent session format offers a self-directed, facilitated learning environment with education sessions, discussion groups, and interactive workshops designed specifically for all levels of attendees engaged in service, learning, and youth development, focusing on current and emerging issues, best practices, and the challenges facing us today. The conference brings together more than 1,000 attendees from across the United States and many other countries: a mix of innovative teachers who engage their youth in creative, meaningful contributions to society, school administrators who are committed to systematic change, researchers who investigate the direct connection between service-learning and graduation rates, policy-makers who take these messages to the Hill, and young leaders making a positive change throughout the world.
