At the 13th Annual National Service Learning Conference

I’m at the National Service Learning Conference right now, and I’ve just finished a workshop called “The Future of Service Learning: A facilitated dialogue among participants and practioners.” There were 25 people there, mostly teachers and staff from CBOs.

Its interesting, these discussions of spreading service and learning and doing things for youth and with youth and volunteering and service and on and on… I’m not sure that we’re having the right conversations anymore. Its as if we’ve created a myth that perpetuated itself, and now its becoming real. That’s scary.

Aside from that, everything is okay. If anybody wants to talk service or learning or service learning or whatever, lemme know- I’d love to tell you about it, and hear what you’re doing.

Other business… The Freechild Project tabled here today, and we’ve exhausted our materials. That’s cool- and a first. Even though I’ve done workshops around our work at freechild.org and about the Project, I haven’t tabled it yet. That was cool, and we made some good contacts.

And on I go. Wish me fun and good luck.
