The National Learn & Serve Challenge: Be a Solution ~ September 17-23, 2007

Mark Your Calendar. Start Planning Now

Our goal is to engage 5 million college students serving and to ensure 50 percent of Americas K-12 schools incorporate service-learning into their curricula by the year 2010.

Accept the Challenge. Join others from around the country in this week-long series of publicity events and community outreach activities designed to raise awareness and public support for service-learning. As people who care about the future of service-learning, let's show our support for Learn and Serve America, the only federal program dedicated to supporting service-learning in local schools, college/universities, and communities.

Start planning now! No idea is too big or too small. There are several ways you can get involved and make difference right in your own backyard.

  • To learn more and to stay connected over the summer, email nslp@aed.org. Type "I Am a Solution" in the subject line.
  • Visit the Learn & Serve Challenge online for suggested ways to get involved or design your own. Check out the website the week of July 16 to download free tools and resource materials to help you plan your own activity or event.
