Service-learning is a way to help young people become engaged in
their communities while helping them learn and develop
personally. When students become involved in their
communities through service, they learn to balance the
rights of citizenship with the responsibilities of
community membership. Plus, service-learning helps
students learn more efficiently, more effectively, and
helps them better remember what they have learned.
Service-learning is a “win-win” for your students, your
school, and your community.
Service-learning is not a new concept.
Learn and Serve America, a program that is
administered by the Corporation for National and
Community Service, is dedicated to expanding service-learning projects in the United States. Learn and Serve
America engages more than 1.8 million students each year in
service-learning - bettering their lives, their schools,
and their communities.

Tell me and I forget.
Teach me and I remember.
Involve me and I learn.
