Service-Learning Sites

Campus Compact

  • Campus Compact is a national coalition of more than 740 college and university presidents committed to the civic purposes of higher education. To support this civic mission, Campus Compact promotes community service that develops students' citizenship skills and values, encourages partnerships between campuses and communities, and assists faculty who seek to integrate public and community engagement into their teaching and research.

National Commission on Service-Learning

  • The National Commission on Service-Learning will bring a new level of public commitment to service-learning by (1) developing recommendations and an action plan to make quality service-learning available to all K-12 students and (2) encouraging adoption of service-learning among target audiences. These audiences include teachers in K-12 public schools; education administrators in school districts and at the state level; and elected and appointed officials at the federal, state and local levels.

National Service-Learning Clearinghouse

  • The work of the Clearinghouse is to support Learn and Serve America grantees, as well as other programs engaged in service-learning, through the collection and dissemination of information and materials.
