Let the 2010-2011 National Learn & Serve Challenge Begin!!!

Let the 2010-2011 National Learn & Serve Challenge Begin

This week, thousands of young people, educators, community partners, civic leaders, and parents/families will commit to speaking up for service-learning in their local schools and communities. Our goals are simple:

1. To increase public awareness about service-learning as an effective strategy for school success, youth development and civic engagement;
2. To increase the number of service-learning opportunities available to young people in both school and community-based organizations; and
3. To increase public support for service-learning in local schools and communities nationwide.

ACCEPT THE CHALLENGE. Be a voice for service-learning this school year. Commit to spread the word about the power of service-learning. The Challenge will provide you with simple, but strategic ways to take action from October 2010 through April 2011 to build public awareness and support for service-learning.

Get Started with 3 Simple Steps:

1. SIGN-UP. Put your service-learning site on the national map of voices for service-learning. Enroll as an individual, classroom, youth group, club, school/campus, school district, organization, or community-wide initiative. Accept the Challenge now.

2. BECOME A CHALLENGE PARTNER. List your school or organization as a proud supporter of service-learning and a partner in the National Learn & Serve Challenge. Become a Partner today.

3. INVITE 5 FRIENDS TO PARTICIPATE WITH YOU. Download sample language to email friends, post on your website or share through your social networks to encourage others to help spread the word about service-learning.
