Workshop & Fun Shop Proposals

We are still accepting proposals for Workshops and Fun Shops for the Conference!  If you have a technique, a program or a skill you would like to share with colleagues from neighboring states, we would love to hear about it and they would too!

Workshops are to be for 90 minutes and should meet one or more of the following objectives: 1) advance educational experiences; 2) encourage volunteer best practices; 3) establish an environment of service or 4) provide an environment for positive youth development. 

Fun Shops will be 60 minute sessions in the evenings.  We are seeking hands-on/interactive workshops in the areas of recreation, educational crafts, food, dance, etc.  The projects should be tied back to the implementation of the “activity” at home focusing on experiential learning and life skills development.

Proposals are due to by August 30, 2016.  For more information, see the Proposal form here.
