Service Learning

"The students really enjoy participating in the hands-on lessons and have so much fun that they sometimes don't realize they're learning!"

- Amy Schmitt, , Matthew 25

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.
