For Martin Luther King Day, the Partnership disseminated project ideas to members and a tool to send automatic letters to the editor promoting their service-learning projects in the spirit of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
The scope of our membership allows the Partnership to see the big picture–from the resources teachers want, to information school district leaders want, to the results policymakers want. We partner with members to address these needs. We conduct studies to inform advocacy, mobilize for better public policies, and organize new ways to spread and sustain service-learning.
The Partnership launched the first-ever, fully developed national and grassroots advocacy campaign ($55 in ’05) to increase federal funding for Learn and Serve America.
Partnership members develop breakthrough efforts to support service-learning. We work with school districts to create better incentives for service-learning, with local schools and businesses to improve community partnerships, and with young leaders to initiate service-learning projects that foster civic participation.
In collaboration with State Farm Insurance Companies, the Partnership and its members are working in six school districts to grow the sustainable use of service-learning, while creating sustainable models for service-learning collaborations between businesses, communities and schools.
