Grants for Youth Engagement Zones

21 02 2011

The Learn and Serve America Youth Engagement Zones are designed to improve academic engagement – including student attendance and behavior – and academic achievement, high school graduation rates, and college-going rates by:

1. Demonstrating the relevance of academic coursework and the value of civic engagement through service-learning;
2. Connecting youth with citizens from diverse communities, backgrounds, and perspectives, providing them with expanded opportunities to serve; and
3. Building enduring capacity within communities to use service as a solution to address pressing challenges.
