April has always been a busy month for volunteering. It is filled with possibilities for those wanting to engage youth in service.  Learn and Serve Tampa Inc started organizing Global Youth Service Month activities in 2021. We were later identified as a Lead Agency by Youth Service America (YSA) and our commitment has expanded yearly.  April includes Earth Day, Arbor Day, National Parks Day, and the Month of the Military Child.  It is also National Distracted Driving Awareness Month, National Canine Fitness Day, and National Gardening Month!  It also claims National Volunteer Month.  It is so busy, YSA extends the month into mid-May! Teachers, consider giving your students a service-learning experience that allows them to connect the concept of community service to academic learning and civic responsibility. Give them time to process and plan for the project throughout the school year with the service being in April or May. Service-learning promotes personal, social, cognitive and academic development in youth. Service-learning projects have many connections to the FLDOE Resiliency Characteristics. Great opportunities are found in AVID, Civics, and 8th grade IB service projects. Learn and Serve Tampa has developed a curriculum to prepare youth and teachers to do a service-learning project.  If interested, contact us today.
