Learn and Serve
Learn and Serve America provides schools, colleges, and community organizations with grants for service-learning projects. Since 1995, more than 38,000 Washington students from kindergarten through college have helped meet community needs while improving their skills and learning the habits of good citizenship through Learn and Serve programs. The Washington State Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction administers Learn and Serve grants to schools, school districts, and educational service districts throughout Washington. The Literacy Partnership, a Learn and Serve America program originally supported by the Washington Commission for National and Community Service, continues to demonstrate the positive impacts of meaningful service-learning to students, school staff, and community members. Descriptions of projects are available on the Service Learning Washington website and in a guide developed for educators, students, and community members who are interested in service-learning or are seeking help in implementing and evaluating service-learning.
