Community Pride and Service Learning Project
Change a piece of your community, discover what it means to be an active citizen, and build a commitment to take action in new and exciting ways. In service learning, youth choose where and how to make a difference, and then carry out the plan. Learn how to identify community needs, plan a service project and execute your idea.
