Registration is now open for the First Annual Tennessee Service-Learning Conference to be held on Feb. 9-10, 2010, at the Embassy Suites Murfreesboro - Hotel & Conference Center. Visit www.volunteertennessee.net to sign up today!

This conference will provide the opportunity for K-12 community-based and school-based youth and practitioners across the state to connect with service-learning leaders through general sessions, workshops, exhibits and networking opportunities. We have secured nationally renowned author and trainer Cathy Berger Kaye (author of The Complete Guide to Service-Learning) as the conference's featured speaker.

State Farm Insurance, a signature sponsor of the conference, is offering youth scholarships for the event (free registration) and you may apply for these online. Otherwise, cost for the conference is $75 for adults and $40 for youth.

Course Code 9395 training for educators might be offered through attendance at the conference. If you are interested in receiving more information about this, please contact Meredith Freeman.

Should you need additional information about the conference, please contact Meredith Freeman, Volunteer Tennessee's Deputy Director, at 615-741-9242 or meredith.freeman@tn.gov.
