What's a Service-Learning Project?
A service-learning project is a fun and effective way to combine knowledge and action. You can help your local environment, wildlife, and community while learning a whole lot. And you'll have fun. Your project may count as community service credit in your high school, and it looks great on your college or job application. Plus, you may qualify for a number of different awards. You can do it! And we can help. Check out some of the teen projects that have already been done. Yours could be next.
After you decide on a topic, put your creative energies to work by designing an action plan, an outline or description of your service-learning project that you use as a guide to carry out the project.
