This organization works to promote service learning in schools across the country. Through service-learning projects, students apply academic skills and knowledge to a real community need, accelerating student achievement by strengthening academic, civic, and character outcomes. To achieve this goal they develop student leadership, encouraging student voice for meaningful change; support educators with customized professional development for schools and districts, online content, and access to resources and tools; and work to advance the field of service-learning nationwide.
The National Youth Leadership Council website includes many resources useful for school support staff and school and district leaders interested in implementing or improving a service learning program. Of particular interest are the Service-Learning Standards for Quality Practice which K-12 practitioners can use to ensure high-quality service-learning practice.
