Service is focused on results

Vanessa Kirsch is speaking eloquently about the need to really talk about and focus on creating results and going to scale.

Both topics seem to go to the heart of where service learning is. How do we focus on the difference we are making in communities? How do we go from a third of all schools to all schools? How does it become a right of passage? We have done a lot to move this process forward and I am very excited about what we can do going forward.

A note to all of us -- we have bi-partisan support for the ideas, we have people willing to help us move the ball forward -- over the coming months it is going to take our time and effort to bring this new idea to fruition.
