Media & Outreach Kit
We are pleased to provide you with marketing and public relations resources to help you inform elected officials, the media, and local communities about your service-learning efforts.
Put simply, people are not aware of Learn & Serve America or that it
is part of the National Service Program. Because of this, its budget has
been cut for three straight years. If this fine program’s light is
not brought out from under a bushel, its future is bleak. The tools and tips provided on this webpage are designed to help you make others aware of the positive impacts of your Learn & Serve activities.
We must make a strong effort to inform Florida’s congressional delegation
of how this grant benefits students and communities in Florida. There are
no restrictions on providing information or inviting
officials to visit your project, and having your students do so is a good service-learning project. We urge you and your students to utilize these resources to expand awareness of your service-learning efforts.
