Forms & Applications

Let’s get started on your Service Learning Award Application!

Service learning is a learn-by-doing approach that takes classroom learning and applies it in a "real world" setting. Teachers will identify classroom objectives, partner with a school (other than your own) or a nonprofit agency, and then apply their objectives to serve that community. The main goal is to link what is studied in the classroom to address community concerns.

Service Learning Awards are non-competitive. Schools and teachers may submit more than one service learning award application. Award applications are due in the spring, for the following school year.  Applications for the 2018-2019 school year are due April 16, 2018 by 4:00 P.M.

The first 10 “Early Birds” (teachers) submitting a service learning application prior to April 16, 2018 for the 2018-2019 school year will receive a gift card at the September 11, 2018 Service Learning Event

We want to fund your school!

Service learning award applications for the 2018-2019 school year will be accepted up until April 16, 2018 at 4:00 P.M. All applicants and principals will receive a status of application letter in August of 2018. Approved schools will receive a service learning award check issued on September 11, 2018 at the annual Service Learning Event. The Service Learning Team will visit your plan once it is underway. Please keep in touch to let us know how your service learning plans are progressing. You can reach us by phone or email.

Service Learning Application Workshops are offered in October, November, December, January and February.
