What is it?
Service-learning is a method of teaching that connects classroom lessons with meaningful service to the community.
Integrated into the academic curriculum, service-learning helps students and schools meet academic goals.
Service-learning enables young people to apply their knowledge in support of their neighbors and community, even as they gain knowledge and skills from meeting real community needs.
Students build character and become active citizens as they work with others in their school or community to create service projects in areas like education, public, safety, and the environment.
