Service Learning

"“The lesson we had was very well geared toward all levels of student abilities and it got the students to know what was available in their neighborhood to see since it was in our backyard!!! "

How does service-learning engage kids in the classroom and school? What do community organizations have to offer our school? Where is the research that shows service-learning really works? How can we share the great stuff our kids are doing in the community?

Service-learning is at the heart of the Keep Iowa Beautiful philosophy of youth education. We believe it’s an important educational tool for engaging students through college. Service-learning involves children, youth and young adults in creating, developing and evaluating projects that address real-world problems. Quality service-learning projects connect young Iowans to community, and empower them to make valuable contributions.

Service learning strengthens educational and personal growth, and promotes a life-long commitment to active citizenship in a diverse society.
