Be a voice for service-learning this school year. Join this grassroot network of thousands of youth, educators, community partners, civic leaders, and families nationwide who share your belief in the power of service-learning to impact school success and transform communities.
The Challenge is a seven-month campaign to increase awareness and public support for service-learning. It begins this week and will culminate in April 2011 with a few key milestones along the way:
- December 6-10: Commemorate the 20th Anniversary of Learn and Serve America
- January 2011: Engage local media through Service-Learning Solution Media Days
- April 6-9, 2011: Showcase and share effective strategies and activities to build support for service-learning at the 2011 National Service-Learning Conference
- April 15-17, 2011: Celebrate the culmination of your efforts in conjunction with the 2011 Global Youth Service Day

Be a Solution: Your Voice Matters.
Service-learning prepares young people for school success. Service-learning also gives young people the chance to use their education to tackle our society’s most persistent problems. Help us tell that story. Spread the word about service-learning to your friends and colleagues. Invite at least five friends to join you in this Challenge.
