A Guide to Service Learning for Disaster Preparation
Amy Kochanasz

This guide is designed as a resource and reference for anyone who is interested in engaging youth/students in service-learning focused on disaster preparation, response, mitigations, and/or recovery. The first section provides useful background information on service-learning, emergency management, and how to focus youth service-learning in this critical area. The second portion of the guide is a set of detailed descriptions and photographs of 20 of the funded projects in Florida. These descriptions provide contact information, background and details about activities, data on project impacts. Finally, the appendix is the Request for Proposals and attachments that were sent to potential applicants in the first year of the program.
