Learn and Serve Tampa, Inc., a 501 (3)(c) not-for-profit organization, strives to bring quality service-learning into local K-12 schools and make service-learning projects and programs readily available to Tampa-area K-12 students. Our goal is to create a sustainable and institutionalized service-learning hub for training, funding, and support for a dedicated network of educators, community service organizations, and altruistic-minded business leaders in Tampa.
Authentic and Reciprocal Service
Projects begin with community need identified and defined by students under the leadership of educators. Service may target needs on a school campus or even take on a global cause. The need drives the call for service and defines the academic learning.
Making A Statement
Focus on Academics
Learn and Serve Tampa was founded by experienced service-learning teachers who understand the importance of connecting service to academic standards. Projects will start with community need but be linking to explicit learning outcomes, often in many academic areas.
