Accelerating student achievement by strengthening academic, civic, and 21st century skills through service-learning instruction.

NYLC is committed to providing high-quality school-based service-learning opportunities that help young people increase their participation in civic engagement; gain 21st century skills; and reach social-emotional learning outcomes.

We partner with school districts and educators around the country to strengthen youth voice and leadership, improving students’ academic success and creating pathways for college and career through quality service-learning instruction. We empower educators to utilize service-learning as a teaching strategy in their classrooms, schools, or school districts by providing customizable training and technical assistance.
