The National Youth Leadership Council (NYLC) is pleased to announce that “State Farm State of Service-Learning Project: An Introduction” is now available online at (listed under “The Generator.”) This document was released in April at the 13th National Service-Learning Conference in Minneapolis, Minnesota, where the project was first announced.

With funding from the State Farm Companies Foundation and under leadership from NYLC, the project is designed as a sustained effort to document and promote the work of service-learning in the United States. By gathering and publishing the scale and scope of service-learning – its status, statistics, and stories – the State Farm State of Service-Learning Project aims ambitiously to provide annual evidence of and inspiration for continued progress in the field of service-learning.

When introducing the document, NYLC CEO/President and Project Director Jim Kielsmeier emphasized, “This is not a first report-it is a prospectus of what we’re going to be collecting.” He urged all members of the service-learning community to participate and to “be our correspondents to help us to find out what’s going on in your particular region or your particular state.”

Feedback and dialogue tools will also be made available on the web as the project progresses. NYLC looks forward to your participation in this initiative. For further information, please contact Dr. Marybeth Neal, Project Research Director, at
