National Learn and Serve Challenge

Posted by on July 2, 2007


Join others from around the country in a week-long series of events, September 17-23, designed to raise awareness and public support for service-learning and Learn & Serve America. Learn and Serve America is the only federal program dedicated to supporting service-learning in local schools, colleges and universities, and communities. The National Learn & Serve Challenge: Be A Solution is a weeklong series of local, state, and national events designed to raise awareness and public support for service-learning. It’s an opportunity to:

* Celebrate service-learning in schools and communities across the country,
* Build public support to achieve the federal benchmark to engage 5 million college students and 50 percent of America’s K-12 schools in service-learning by the year 2010, and
* Spotlight past service-learning successes to inspire others to launch their own project.
