Join us as we impact our community through learning.

The mission of the Academic Service Learning program is to connect meaningful service learning to the community with classroom instruction that enriches learning, teaches civic responsibility, and fosters personal growth.


In 2014-2015, Academic Service Learning connected curriculum to the real world through service for over 4000 students through a total of 47 projects facilitated by 102 teachers connecting with 50 local, national and international community partners. Bailey Lake Elementary, Clarkston Elementary, Independence Elementary and Pine Knob Elementary staff and students participated in school-wide projects along with on-going classroom projects.


Let's continue growing our passion for serving others while learning. Our workshops will provide learning to elevate educational experiences through Academic Service Learning.
