I came across a short School Library Journal blurb for a program this week and knew it was perfect for Living Your Five. The National Learn & Serve Challenge, which is designed to raise awareness and build support for service learning, is scheduled for October 5-11, 2009. Join them for a week of special events and community outreach activities designed to raise awareness and build support for service-learning.
The program's goals for 2010 are:
-- Engage 5 million college students in service
-- Ensure 50 percent of America's K-12 schools incorporate service-learning into their curricula
Lofty goals? Definitely. But achievable? I think so, especially if you get involved and help spread the word! Even their motto--"Be a solution"--is perfectly in line with Living Your Five.
Thanks to School Library Journal for putting this great program on my radar!
Are you ready to Live Your Five?
