National Service-Learning Standards

In a nationwide collaborative effort involving the input of over 1,000 service-learning practitioners, educators, and experts, standards and indicators for service learning have been established for the first time. Based on research and vetted/refined by over 50 reactor panels, the standards define the components of effective service learning in a K-12, curriculum-based context.

These standards should be reviewed and understood by all service-learning stakeholders, and integrated into service-learning project planning, design, implementation, training, and evaluation.

National Service-Learning Standards are now available.
