NYLC Resource Center for Service-Learning

Posted by on May 12, 2006

Introducing the NYLC Resource Center: Two Decades of Service-Learning Experience at Your Fingertips!

NYLC welcomes you to our new online Resource Center ? a highly searchable, interactive service-learning library ? at http://www.nylc.org/resourcecenter.

The Resource Center draws upon more than 20 years worth of NYLC writings, including key articles, excerpts from books, research, and training materials; writings by leaders in the service-learning movement; and project examples from across the country. But the Resource Center is not just a place to find materials; it’s a place to contribute.

At the NYLC Resource Center, you can ?
* Search for information by keywords or use our advanced search to pinpoint precisely what you need.
* Find field-proven project examples that can be adapted to your community and curricular needs.
* Access NYLC Tip Sheets and training materials.
* Save time by using “toolboxes” filled with the best materials on key issues, from getting started to assessment.
* Save documents to “my resources” for easy access from any computers.
* Email links to “my documents” and your favorite toolboxes to friends, colleagues, and students ? especially useful for trainers, service-learning coordinators, and others who regularly share resources.
* Contribute by creating toolboxes to share your favorite documents with other users, commenting on existing resources, and submitting examples of successful projects.

NYLC has carefully evaluated all resources, so you know you can trust them. And it’s all free.

This is an ongoing project that will continue to grow, so please contribute to the site and let us know how we can make it better.

The NYLC Resource Center is sponsored by the State Farm Companies Foundation.
