From The Chair

Those of you attending the National Service-Learning Conference, which starts this Sunday in Orlando, will be able to participate in several terrific Partnership events. See you at:

*     The Partnership's third annual meeting, Monday March 29 at 5:30 PM. Together we will tackle this year's burning question: On the road ahead, what more can we do to build a powerful advocacy network?

*     Raise Your Voice, a first-ever advocacy strand of seven workshops, spread over three days, organized by Nelda Brown, chair of the Partnership's advocacy committee, and her fellow committee members

*     Two additional workshops on the W.K. Kellogg Youth Innovation Fund and District Lessons

*     Our booth. Pick up new products that help make the case for service-learning. Bring a colleague to enroll in the Partnership. And take home information on the State Farm Good Neighbor Service-Learning Initiative.
