YMCA Service Learning Projects

Service Learning projects offer both youth and adults an opportunity to learn about important issues, take action, and make a difference in the world around them!

The Y is pleased to provide a suite of resources that can guide adults in helping youth identify their interests, and connecting those interests to volunteer and service-learning projects in their community. Service Learning helps young people figure out what excites them, and what skills and passions they can share as part of the larger world.

More than volunteering, service-learning is a deliberate process through which young people establish learning objectives based on a volunteer activity (ex: learn more about a neighborhood, interview a resident), perform a meaningful community service and reflect upon the experience (writing in a journal, submitting a letter to the editor, videotaping and sharing what they learned).
