National Learn & Serve Challenge Week

"The National Learn & Serve Challenge, October 6-12, 2008, is a concentrated week of special events and activities designed to spotlight service-learning successes around the country. It is also designed to show support for Learn and Serve America and inspire other schools and communities to launch their own service-learning initiatives.

What Can You Do?

Below is a list of simple, but important ways you can participate:
1. Host a service-learning t-shirt or button day at your school or organization... 2. Make a presentation to your local school board and/or city council...
3. Include a service-learning update in your school or organization's newsletter or website...
4. Show the Bring Learning to Life Public Service Announcement or another service-learning video during an upcoming staff or board meeting...
5. Set up a service-learning booth or exhibit table as part of key community events, such as a local football game or Back to School night...

Register your Challenge event by Friday, September 5, 2008 and become eligible to win an official 'Learn & Serve Challenge Gift Bag'...

If you know the power of service-learning and believe that more young people must have the opportunity to learn and serve, please join us in this weeklong series of publicity events and community outreach activities designed to raise awareness of and celebrate service-learning."

The Learn & Serve Challenge is a signature event of the National Service-Learning Partnership, made possible with support from State FarmŽ Companies Foundation.
