National Service-Learning Partnership
Founded in 2001, the National Service-Learning Partnership is a national advocacy network through which its members educate, organize, and mobilize for strategic leadership that promotes and strengthens the practice of service-learning. Service-learning is a teaching method that engages students in service to their schools and communities as part of their academic studies.
The Partnership is dedicated to advancing service-learning as a core element of the educational experience of every elementary, middle, and secondary school student in the United States. The Partnership concentrates on strengthening the impact of service-learning on young people’s learning and development, especially their academic and civic preparation. For the Partnership, service-learning is about educational excellence.
