Across the country there are service-learning projects and programs that are making a tremendous difference in the local community. One program is the Gulf Coast Walkabout, a service-learning-based summer school program for 5th - 8th graders in the Gulf Coast region that addresses the long-term recovery needs of communities. This program is part of the Resources for Recovery initiative by NYLC and the State Farm Companies Foundation. Read more about the Gulf Coast Walkabout program and the wonderful contributions that youth are providing through their learn through service opportunities.
