National Leadership Forum 2013

Marching Off the Map: Charting the Course for the Next Decade of Student Development
Students are changing. Are you keeping up?
Most educators and youth workers believe our current school system is not preparing our students for the future. Significant changes are needed to educate this digital generation. But most of us don't have big budgets. So what can we do? This year's National Leadership Forum will provide a sneak peak into the next ten years of education, and what measurable changes you can make on a low budget that could revolutionize your teaching and get everyone ready. We are calling it: "Marching Off the Map."
Come hear from a futurist, a researcher, a practitioner, an employer, a generational expert, and a panel of students to learn what you can do to make the improvements your school or organization needs to reach kids.This event could make the challenge of student retention, engagement and graduation irrelevant.
