Held every November, the NABSE Conference attracts between 4,000-5,000 conferees for four days of inspiring plenary sessions, school tours, informative presentations and educational workshops. The conference includes an exhibition area with more than 200 vendors of educational products and services.

The NABSE Annual Conference is also the site of the Annual Hall of Fame Awards, honoring outstanding African Americans in the field of education and those who have made indelible contributions to the African American community.

To meet the needs of the children, NABSE has a Youth Symposium designed to facilitate conversation and encourage youth action.  This site is dedicated to the teachers and students who will be involved with the Youth Symposium.

The Youth Symposium is designed to motivate students in ways that will increase their desire to work towards academic achievement. This year, the Youth Symposium will be conducted by Erik Cork.  His program, Rap, Rhythm and Rhyme: Rebuilding the Writing Foundation, is an intensely fast-paced workshop that empowers students to systematically organize their thoughts and communicate them effectively on paper. Through music, movement and rap, students from the greater New Orleans Area and surrounding parishes will actively participate in a “visually stimulating and physically intoxicating buffet of teachable techniques.”

The Youth Symposium convenes on Thursday, November 17, 2011 at 8:30 a.m. until 1:00 p.m.  Lunch is provided for the students and although designed for students, it is open to all.
