Our Education Team traveled to Atlanta, GA last Wednesday to attend the National Service Learning Conference. We believe this was an experience worth sharing.
Students and educators from all over the U.S. joined together to share a wide variety of service-learning projects. Action Against Hunger was among many other nonprofits educating teachers and students about their service-learning program as well as promoting the different educational resources available for them.
Teachers, exhibitors, students and presenters stopped by our booth and asked questions about Action Against Hunger and our educational resources. Many were interested in our service program—the Race Against Hunger. To find out more about the Race Against Hunger, check out our Race Against Hunger page.
It was a great experience as we were able to connect with people that share our passion and interest in service-learning. It was our second time in Atlanta, as last year we visited some Race participating schools to give them an educational presentation on global hunger issues and our life-saving programs. That was also a great experience!
We would be delighted to have more schools in Georgia enrolled in our Race next year!
Next year’s conference will be in Minneapolis, MN. Check out the NSLC’s website to see how you can get involved in next year’s event.
