The National Service-Learning Partnership has announced a challenge to those interested in service learning. October 5-11, 2009 will be a week of special events and community outreach that will raise awareness and build support for service-learning across the United States.
Students involved in GenYES and TechYES programs across the country and around the world are providing service to their schools and communities, and this is a great way to show students that they are part of a growing movement of citizens stepping up and working for change.
Through the Challenge, you can:
- Spotlight the value of service-learning to young people, schools, and communities.
- Encourage others to launch service-learning activities
- Build support for service-learning among decision-makers
- Increase recognition of Learn and Serve America, the only federal program dedicated to service-learning
