Service Learning Programs

Code: HH-7950

Programs that provide opportunities for students in elementary schools, secondary schools, institutions of higher education or community service programs to learn and develop through active participation in thoughtfully organized services that are conducted to meet the needs of the communities in which they live. Service learning programs are integrated into and enhance the academic curriculum of students or the education components of the service program in which participants are enrolled; and may involve projects such as preserving native plants, designing neighborhood playgrounds, teaching younger children to read, testing local water quality, creating wheelchair ramps, preparing food for people who are homeless, developing urban community gardens and starting school recycling programs. Many service learning programs are funded by Learn and Serve which is administered by the Corporation for National and Community Service.
