NCFL Seeks Adult Learners to Share Their Learning Stories @ 2018 Families Learning Conference

NCFL seeks adult learners to share their learning stories
NCFL Blog: 2.21.2018

The National Center for Families Learning (NCFL) invites adult learners to apply to be a speaker at the 2018 Families Learning Conference, held from September 24 to 26, 2018, in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

Each year during our Conference, students share their learning stories with attendees during General Sessions (a time when all attendees are gathered together at once). Having students share their stories of determination, hard work, and achievement inspires us all.

Students can nominate themselves
Program staff can nominate students
The DEADLINE is Tuesday, May 1, 2018, 11:59 p.m. EDT
