About this grant

This grant will support the National Youth Leadership Council in its efforts to explore how afterschool and summer learning programs can integrate service learning as a strategy to increase learning outcomes for students. The grantee will: 1) work with up to five statewide afterschool networks to integrate and support service learning in local afterschool programs; 2) create a longer-term plan for how to infuse service-learning as a strategy for the statewide afterschool networks; and 3) work with the statewide afterschool networks and the National Summer Learning Association to develop resources and best practices for service learning and afterschool programs.
