2008 National Learn & Serve Challenge: Be A Solution!

Accept the Challenge: October 6-12, 2008

Join your peers from around the country for a concentrated week of special events and community outreach activities designed to raise awareness and build support for service-learning.

After a successful inaugural 2007 National Learn & Serve Challenge, planning began for a bigger and better 2008 Challenge. We revamped the website, created activity ideas and tip sheets, and added outreach materials! In the coming weeks, we will be posting information here about new additions on the Challenge website, which include how-to videos, a Facebook group for the Challenge, widgets, and more!

Participating is easy! Already, people from around the country are planning events for the Challenge week.

The Borough of Manhattan Community College will be hosting a service-learning fair. The Annapolis Road Academy, the University of Maine Farmington, Patuxent Valley Middle School, and Parkdale High School will use environmental projects to bring the focus to service-learning. Many more groups, individuals, organizations, and schools will be shining the spotlight on service-learning during the Challenge.
